‘Ball Drop’ offers cash prize for winner


The Canyon Lake Chamber invites residents to participate in it’s first annual Ball Drop for a chance to win up to $5,000. The Ball Drop will take place after the Chamber’s annual Golf Tournament on Saturday, May 20. Participants don’t have to enter the tournament to participate and winner need not be present to win.

Here’s how it works. Golf ball “numbers” are purchased for $10 each. Each ball purchaser provides their contact information and gets one number per golf ball; not the actual ball.

Using a mechanical lift, the hopper filled with the numbered golf balls will be lifted and dropped all at once over a hole (cup) on the Practice Range. The purchaser of the numbered ball that lands in the bottom of the cup will receive half the money collected from the golf ball sales, up to $5,000.

Numbers for the Ball Drop may be purchased at Pack, Wrap and Post in the Towne Center, Canyon Lake Country Club and the Chamber office. A limited number of balls are available.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Canyon Lake Jr. Golf Program.
