Holy Trinity golf tourney set for Aug. 11

Published 11:13 am Wednesday, July 19, 2017

A protective bunker may have come in handy at last year’s charity golf tournament sponsored by the Church of the Holy Trinity. There was a torrential downpour, but it did not keep golfers from playing in the annual event.

“Golfers came back to the club house a little muddy,” event organizer Ray Hume said, adding they had a good time visiting afterwards.

Although rain did not spoil the fundraiser, Hume is hoping for clear skies on Aug. 11 when this year’s event will take place at the Vicksburg Country Club, 127 Country Club Dr.

For the past 17 years, the Church of the Holy Trinity has sponsored a charity golf tournament, which benefits one of the many social services in Vicksburg.

For the 18th installment, proceeds will go to the Vicksburg Family Development Service.

“This is an organization that promotes parent education, and they have good mentoring programs for kids 10 to 17,” Hume said.

Golfers look forward to the tournament each year, Hume said, because participants have fun.

“I took a flyer for the event out to the country club the other day, and everyone there said they have enjoyed playing in the tournaments,” Hume said. At the conclusion of the tournament, Hume said, two sets of prizes would be awarded.

“When the day is complete, prizes will be awarded to those with low scores,” Hume said, and there will also be door prizes.

For participants with the lowest score, prizes will consists of gift cards to the Vicksburg Country Club’s pro shop. The golf tournament will begin at 1 p.m. with at shotgun start, and there is a four-man, 20-team limit. The cost is $80 per person, which includes a cart, beverages, range balls, one mulligan and lunch that will be served starting at 11:30 a.m. Hole sponsorships are also available for $100.
