Golf Bag: Elks' Froehlich Event Set
The annual sighting of Eli Jaksic can mean only one thing — the Southern Pines Elks Club’s Emil Froehlich Memorial Golf Tournament is lurking just around the corner.
The 16th annual tournament, with proceeds used for the benefit of special needs children and adults of Moore County, is scheduled for July 21 at Southern Pines Golf Club.
The entry fee is $75 per player, and the captain’s choice event is open to men, women and mixed teams. Individual players are urged to sign up and will be placed on a team.
There are several forms of sponsorship available that help provide picnics, dances, parties and entertainment for persons of special needs. The program has donated 20 personal computers to the Moore County school system for classrooms devoted to the education of exceptional children, and has also donated three computers to the Sandhills Children’s Center.
Teacher grants of $3,500 last year helped provide educational material for instructors of children with special needs.
There will be closest to the pin awards for men and women on designated par-3 holes, and for the closest to the line drive. Awards will be presented to the top three teams in each flight.
There will be an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start and an awards luncheon following play.
To enter or for more information and to reserve a sponsorship, call (910) 692-7375.
