FENCE golf tournament adds $10,000 prize

Published 11:36 am Thursday, April 14, 2011

This month’s FENCE Benefit Golf Tournament at Bright’s Creek on Monday, April 25, will feature a $10,000 hole-in-one award, along with a second opportunity to win a 2011 Buick Regal from Boyd Automotive for a hole-in-one scorer.

The awards are among several that are available to players on the challenging Tom Fazio-designed course at Bright’s Creek, normally open only to club members. Drawings will be held post-tournament for the weekend use of a BMW X5 or X6, sponsored by BMW Manufacturing and for a two-night stay at Bright’s Creek with two days of golf.

“We have fifteen teams registered, with room for more, as well as room for individual players,” said FENCE Director of Development Theron Farmer. “We’ll also have a nationally-ranked Long Ball Driving champion on course to help take players to uncharted second shot territory.”
