Organizers of the Friends of NCCS Golf Tournament are looking for a few good golfers.
The annual tournament is returning for its third year Sunday, Sept. 11, as a way to raise money for the varsity golf and soccer teams at Northeastern Clinton Central High School.
Golf team coach Matthew Fredette, one of the organizers of the tournament, said funding raised by the tournament is “crucial.”
“There isn’t a lot of money in the [school district] budget,” said Fredette. “So, something like this helps us go to tournaments, buy uniforms and equipment.”
The tournament is a lot of work to organize, but worth the effort, said Fredette.
“It’s almost imperative we host this because it gets the kids the things they need,” he said.
The Sept. 11 tournament will be held at North Country Golf Club, 862 Hayford Road, and will follow a four-man scramble format. Teams must have a combined handicap of at least 40. Prizes will be awarded for longest drive, closest-to-the-pin and for first, second and third places. Special hole-in-one prizes have also been donated by Parker Chevrolet.
The cost to register is $50 for course members and $70 for nonmembers. Both prices include a cart and dinner.
