Tiger Club tournament this weekend at W-WCC has a limit of 54 golfers

The winter chill is gone and the dreary short days have given way to spring days which have trees and greens and fareways popping forth with new life. With all that comes the almost irresistable urge to tee up and head to the links for those already golfing this year and those who haven’t made it to the course yet.

Whichever golfer you are, or even if you’re not a golfer, it’s time to sign up for the annual Washington-¬≠Wilkes Tiger Club Golf Tournament.

The big event is set for this Saturday, April 14, at the Washington Wilkes Country Club beginning with the first tee time at 9 a.m. Three-man teams will consist of all three players playing select shot (scramble), and the tournament will be pre-flighted into two flights based on the average handicap of each team. Men will play from the white/blue tees; women and juniors from the red tees; and seniors will play from the gold tees.

Only 54 players will be allowed to participate in the tournament and the entry fee is $110 per player. Included in the entry fee are lunch, a cart, red tee and string. To sign up, contact Cary Callaway at 706-338- 5233.

Prior to the tournament will be the Calcutta on Friday, April 13, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Heavy hors d’oeuvres will precede at 6:30 p.m.

The public is invited on Friday night to meet the W-WCHS Tiger coaches and their spouses. Families are encouraged to attend and be welcomed by Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Chad Alligood.

The entire weekend event is a fundraiser to support Washington Wilkes Tiger athletics and in addition to the tournament and Calcutta, hole sponsorships are available for anyone wishing to support the tournament off the course. Hole sponsorships include sign placement and are $100 each. To sign up, call Amy Harkins at 706-318-5801.
