BERLIN — Worcester County GOLD (Giving Other Lives Dignity) will hold its inaugural 18-hole golf tournament on Nov. 6. The event, in a scramble format, will be held at the “must play” Rum Pointe Seaside Golf Links.
“This is an exciting venture for GOLD,” said event co-organizer, Mary Burgess. “Golf tournaments are noted for raising funds and awareness for good causes. There is no better cause than helping local families and children in need.”
The 18 holes of fun will begin with registration at 10:30 a.m. and a shotgun start at 11:30 a.m. The $100 per player fee includes 18 holes, a cart, and box lunch. Desserts, awards, and Lucky Ticket Auction will follow immediately after the tournament. Mulligans will be available for $1 each per golfer at registration.
Awards include Winning Team; second and third place winners; longest drive for male and female players; and closest to the pin for male and female players. The first golfer who makes a hole-in-one on the designated hole will be the winner of a car sponsored by Pohanka of Salisbury.
