Youth Services Golf Tourney teed up
BRATTLEBORO — Youth Services invites area golfers to participate in its annual golf tournament at Brattleboro Country Club on Wednesday, July 22. The event is presented by Headwater Precision, LLC. This is the 35th year that Youth Services has organized this tournament to support the safety net for youth in our community, making it the longest-running charity tournament in the area and only the second one to take place in Windham County this summer.
Registration opens at 11 a.m. on July 22 and there will be free gourmet bag lunches. The shotgun start for the Scrambles format tournament will take place at noon. The tournament will follow CDC and state regulations for social distancing, so there is a small possibility that there may be a need to change to a tee-time format. Unlike other years, following the tournament there will not be a banquet at the country club for teams.
The tournament's Hole-In-One Contest prizes are sponsored by Brattleboro Subaru and include: 2020 Subaru Impreza; a 60-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV; a $500 Visa Gift Card; and Callaway Irons. Prizes will also be awarded for low gross and low net game scores, as well as for the Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin and Closest to the Line for both men and women. Mulligans also will be on sale, and the traditional putting contest will take place during the tournament.
