Par-Tee for pets: Tryon Country Club to host golf benefit for Foothills Humane Society

Published 10:00 pm Tuesday, September 27, 2016

The for-sure winners at the Tryon Country Club golfing benefit on Thursday, Oct. 6, will be the many cats and dogs of the Foothills Humane Society. To be one of the 40 golfers taking their chances on nine scenic holes, players need to make an immediate reservation to be assured of one of the few remaining spots in the Par-Tee for Pets. A confirmed reservation guarantees a seat in the golf cart of a captain’s choice foursome followed by an awards lunch. Shotgun start will be at 10 a.m. There are no guarantees as to how well each player will perform but mulligans are available to help improve chances.

Pro-shop gift certificates will be awarded for low gross and low net foursomes. There are also prizes for the closest to the pin at holes 3 and 8.

Lunch includes sandwiches, pasta salad, wine, beer, water, soft drinks, cookies, and more. The same dining is also available for non-golfers for a fee.
