The public is invited to participate in the Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce’s annual Golf Tournament and Ball Drop on Saturday, May 19. A portion of the proceeds will go toward the Canyon Lake Jr. Golf program.
This year’s tournament offers two hole-in-one prizes: 2018 Yamaha YXZ, sponsored by EXIT Blue Water Realty and Yamaha Motor Corp., and a golf cart ,sponsored by Prestige Golf Carts.
The tournament will have three flights: Open, Senior (60 years of age and older) and Jack & Jill (two women and two men).
Registration starts at 10 a.m.; Shotgun start at 12 p.m., followed by the Ball Drop, dinner, awards and opportunity drawings
The entry fee is $100 per golfer. Canyon Lake annual golf course members pay $65. Entry fee includes round of golf, golf cart fee and dinner. The cost to attend dinner only is $25.
Sponsorship is available in the form of tee sponsorship, item donation for drawing and business sponsorship.
The Ball Drop will take place following the tournament. Participants do not have to enter the tournament to participate and winners need not be present to win.
How does the Ball Drop work? Golf ball “numbers” are purchased for $10 each. The purchaser provides their contact information and receives one number per ball, not the actual golf ball.
Using a mechanical lift, the hopper filled with the numbered golf balls will be lifted and dropped all at once over a hole on the practice range.
The purchaser of the numbered ball that lands in the bottom of the hole will receive half the money collected from the Ball Drop sales, up to $5,000.
Golf ball numbers are available now at Pack, Wrap and Post in the Towne Center and the Golf Pro Shop at the country club. For more information, contact Alison Burrafato at 951-244-6124 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
