The Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe Golf Tournament is Oct. 12 at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course, Stateline.
Every dime of every $195 entry fee goes directly to the Boys & Girls Club to continue its work with local kids since Edgewood Tahoe has donated the course. The player fee has also been reduced by $55 from 2008.
Lots of prizes are part of the draw, including a one-week trip to Hawaii, $10,000 for a hole-in-one, and a 42-inch Sony flat screen TV. Thereâ€™s more:
* Rounds of golf at Tahoe/Reno areaâ€™s top courses
* A ski trip to Steamboat Springs
* Sports memorabilia
* Golf equipment
* Wines and spirits
* Stays at top area hotels
* Divine 9 Ticket To Paradise (one round of golf at each of the 9 Carson City/Valley courses)
* Certificates for area restaurants, attractions, activities and merchandise
Along with all the great prizes, raffles and auction items is a round of golf at Edgewood Tahoe, the site of the annual American Century Championship, the celebrity event on NBC Sports. And players have their choice of format, either Best Ball or Scramble, with prizes awarded in both categories. In addition to $10,000 for an ace on all par 3s, thereâ€™s also closest-to-the-pin prizes on each par 3.
All golfers have a shot at the Grand Prize Raffle, a one week stay at a Marriott Vacation Club of their choice, including Maui, Kauai, St. Thomas, valued at $3,500-$4,000; courtesy of Christopher Klesh, a vacation lifestyle consultant who helps travelersâ€™ dreams come true for 10 cents on the dollar.
