facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

   The Knights of Columbus’ 12th Annual Charity Golf Tournament to benefit high school scholarships is Saturday, April 5 at Saddlebrooke Ranch West golf course, milepost 93 on Highway 77, just north of Oracle Junction.  Sign ups will be at 7 with tee off at 8 am.

   “This is promising to be our best tournament ever,” said tournament director John Wahlmeier. 

   The cost is $75 and includes lunch and a golf cart.

   “To raise money for high school scholarships, we will auction off a round of golf for four at the brand new Casino del Sol golf course.  We will also auction off a round of golf for four at the renowned Omni golf course,” he added.

   “For the first time, we will auction off four reserved seat tickets to an Arizona Diamondbacks game,” Wahlmeier said.

   “These are only a few of our auction items.  And we have tons and tons of raffle prizes too.  If you buy a raffle ticket you are pretty sure to win something,” Wahlmeier said.

   The Knights will offer two “Hole in One” contests at no cost to players.  One is for a golf cart from Golf Cars of Arizona and the second is for three days and two nights in Laughlin, Nevada according to Wahlmeier.

   The Knights will award prizes for First and Second place, closest to the pin, longest drive, longest putt and most accurate drive.  They will offer Mulligans too.

   “A hallmark of our tournament is our surprise prize,”  Wahlmeier said.

   “One year it went to the worst score, once it went to the exact middle score.  Who knows what it will be this year.  You don’t have to be a great player to win a great prize in our tournament,” Wahlmeier added.
