Spring has nearly sprung and it’s time to shake the winter chill off the golf clubs and hit the links for Mineral Area College Foundation’s annual golf tournament on May 2 Crown Pointe Golf Course.
MAC Foundation uses the proceeds to provide scholarships and enhancements to the college’s quality education.
The MAC Foundation Golf Tournament offers both morning and afternoon sessions on May 2 (rain date, May 16). Teams can register for the 8 a.m. session for $360 and the 1 p.m. session for $400. The deadline to register is April 20. Teams that register by April 10 are entered in a drawing to win a dozen Pro V1 golf balls.
Team packages for the four-person scramble include complimentary green fees, cart rentals, mulligans, beverages, souvenirs, an awards dinner and auction, and a chance to win thousands of dollars in prizes. Showcase prize tickets, skins and barbecue will be sold on the course. Parkland Health Center is the presenting sponsor.
Businesses can offer additional support by purchasing a $100-hole sponsorship. Hole sponsors will have their name boldly visible on the course.
Additional sponsorship opportunities can be viewed online at www.MineralArea.edu/foundation, by calling (573) 518-2114, or by sending a check payable to MAC Foundation at P.O. Box 1000, Park Hills, MO 63601.
Kevin Thurman, director of development for MAC, said that this tournament is widely known as one of the best tournaments in the area.
“We consistently have a full slate of teams participating in this event for many reasons. We offer high-quality prizes including great hole-contest prizes,” he said. “We offer $1,800 in prize money to the winning teams and most importantly, the money goes to a great cause.”
The profits from the golf tournament supports the MAC Foundations annual fund which will benefit MAC students with needed tools and technology.
