The 13th annual Fairland Lions Club “Dr. Bill Goodman Memorial” Golf Tournament will be held Saturday, April 21 at Peoria Ridge Golf Course.
The tournament is a four-person team scramble, with individual competitive events, and a Pink Lady team competition. The entry fee of $65 per player includes cart use, lunch, treats, prizes and other amenities.
A $1 million prize for a hole-in-one at a designated hole and a $5,000 prize putting contest are planned.
Every tournament player may participate in the stand-alone putting contest and will be allowed one attempt to hole a 10-foot putt. If successful, they will be allowed one attempt to hole a 30-foot putt, and if successful, allowed one attempt to hole a 50-foot putt for the grand prize.
Since there can only be one $5,000 winner, if more than one player is successful at the 50-foot putt, a putt-off will be conducted to determine the final winner.
Players need to be at the golf course to sign in by 8 a.m. So they can enjoy some coffee and donuts with team members and get in a little practice. Play gets underway with a shotgun start at 9 a.m.
The rain date for the tournament is Saturday, April 28.
Businesses and professional establishments throughout the tri-state area contribute to the fund raising success of the tournament as sponsors of holes along the course layout and by donating prizes.
Proceeds are used to provide youth projects, community improvement projects, eyesight needs, and emergency relief assistance in northeastern Oklahoma.
