Van Buren Elementary to host 5th grade golf scramble

Friday, September 14, 2012

The Van Buren Elementary School fifth-grade golf scramble will take place Sept. 29, at the Forest Park Golf Course.

The fifth-graders will host their first golf scramble. Money will be raised for the students to go on field trips, as well as cost for end of year graduation and other activities.

Cost will be $50 per person, which will cover the cost of golf, lunch, drinks and a T-shirt.

Lunch will begin at noon, with a shotgun start set for 1 p.m.

Prizes will be awarded for first- and second-place gross, first- and second-place net, longest drive on hole No. 18, longest putt on hole No. 9, and closest to pin on holes No. 2, 5 and 11.

Hole No. 2 will have two flags for golfers to choose from. They will be able to play whichever hole their ball lands closest to.

In addition, the tourney will feature an antique hole at No. 8, where golfers will tee off with a vintage driver and finish the hole with a vintage putter.

Clubs will be provided on the antique hole.

On hole No. 13, golfers will be able to move up by winning at a bean bag toss for only $10 per team.

Golfers will also be able to prove their smarts in a contest against the fifth-graders. Those who pass the test will be able to move up for free on hole No. 16.

For further information, call 448-1362 Ext. 2823 or e-mail dyerbr@clay.k12.in.us.

Looks like a well-planned fundraising event!! I hope for a good turn out and that everyone has a great time. Of course, a healthy profit would be super!
