33rd Annual Glade Lions Golf Tournament Set for September 10 | local sports

The Fairfield Glade Lions Club recently announced that their 33rd annual benefit golf tournament will be held on Saturday, September 10 at Heatherhurst Crag.

A shootout is scheduled for 8:00 a.m.

The tournament will be a four-way race for men, women and mixed flights with an entry fee of $75 per person. Fees include green fees, shooting balls, a goody bag, continental breakfast, drinks and lunch for players only.

Entry forms are available at each Fairfield Glade pro store, online at www.fairfieldglade.com/Golf/Tournaments or by contacting Duane West at 931-484-3441 or Lion Joe at 417-230-1141.

Make all checks payable to Fairfield Glade Lions Club and send registration form to Duane West, 113 Huntington Drive, Fairfield Glade, TN 38558.

Eye Centers of Tennessee, LLC will be the tournament sponsor. Lunch will be provided by Willow Café & Catering.

Most other tournaments require each player in the foursome to use their disc a certain number of times during the round. The Lions Tournament allows each player to use their long drive as often as the team wishes.

Another difference for the Lions Tournament is a ‘betting rule’. Each player must be the assigned putter twice during the round and must putt for the team. They can only use their own Mulligans for this purpose. The remaining 10 holes revert to standard scrambling rules where each player putts for the team.

Mulligans can be purchased at the registration table for $5 each or five for $20.
