It's being called the "Scramble of the Summer" and it's filling up faster than tournament organizers thought was possible.
The Battle for the Belts two-person scramble put on by Parkland Source for Sports goes down on Sunday, July 26 at the Gilbert Plains Country Club, Parkland's premier golf destination, and one of the finest across the province.
As of today, there are already 45 teams signed up and the maximum is 72.
"Registration has been going incredible, there has been a ton of chatter and people are certainly interested," said Danny Scott. "We're well above what we thought we would have at this point. I would say a sellout is definitely in the cards at this point."
When it comes to making a hole-in-one on the course, it's a shot that no one ever forgets especially, if you're the one that sinks it. And if you do just that on hole #4 or #17 during the event, you could walk away with a big prize.
Love & Persson Group has stepped up to sponsor hole-in-one prizes. The prize for draining your first shot on number 4 is $10,000. The prize for making an ace on 17 is $1000. There are also two prizes per hole so if someone makes an ace before you, you'll still have a chance at the big prize.
Hole 4 will play 125 yards while 17 will measure 150 yards.
Tournament organizers want to remind all interested players that this event is for everyone. Whether you're a scratch golfer or you play three times a year, you can play and have a great time while doing so.
"This is 100% a fun tournament with a chance to win some prizes," concluded Scott. "We have some junior teams, some women's teams, grandparents playing with their grandchildren, and everything in between. It's going to be a lot of fun."
You can sign up at the golf course or by calling Chris at 648-7989 or Danny at 572-7552.
