UXBRIDGE: With the warm weather now in full-effect, what better way to spend a day, than hitting the links for charity?
The Township of Uxbridge Mayor’s Charity Golf Tournament returns for it’s 33rd anniversary on Friday, July 15. This year, the tournament is being held at Uxbridge’s own Wooden Sticks.
All proceeds raised at this tournament go solely towards funding events or activities, by non-profit organizations and individuals within Uxbridge, that directly benefit the community.
Wooden Sticks is hosting the Mayor’s Charity Golf Tournament for the first time. The format this year is 18-hole “Texas Scramble,”. Tee-off time is at 7:30 a.m.
“Texas Scramble”, is a golf format which consists of four person teams, with each member of the team playing his or her own ball. Each succeeding shot is played from the spot of the single best preceding shot. In layman’s terms; after all team members hit their drives, the best of the four drives is selected and the other three team members move their balls to that spot for their next drive. This continues until the ball is holed (Otherwise known as Best Ball).
After registering, all participants will be treated to full bag drop services, along with a prize table consisting of gifts, such as a TaylorMade golf bag or wedge, and Footjoy Hydralite golf shoes.
Breakfast and lunch buffets will be provided. Prizes will be handed out for top teams, closest to the pin, and longest drive. Participants also have the chance at winning $10,000, in a hole-in-one contest.
This year’s event takes place during the British Open, at Royal Toon in Scotland. Wooden Sticks 11th hole is inspired by the “Postage Stamp” hole at Royal Toon. In fact, all of the holes at Wooden Sticks are inspired by actual holes from famous golf courses around the world.
The cost of registration is $300 per person or $1,200 for a team of four. Registration and breakfast buffet begins at 6 a.m.. Welcome speeches and shotgun start at 7:30 a.m.; lunch, other speeches, and handing out of prizes start at 1:30 p.m.
If you cannot participate in the tournament, but would still like to take part in supporting its cause, there are many sponsorship opportunities available.
