Prizes will be awarded for top teams, hole-in-one, closest-to-the-pin, and longest drive competitions.
“We are very excited about this event. It will be a wonderful tournament for both men and women golfers, but we are hoping that a lot of women will come out to play. Amelia River is a great course for ladies, and we have selected many of the prizes with them in mind,” said Clara Miller, Golf Tournament Committee Chair.
Prizes selected for women include a set of Laura Diaz golf clubs; entry to the Women Fore Golf clinic at the Fernandina Beach Golf Club; and gift certificates to Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery, Magna’s, and Cindy’s Hair & Nails.
“Of course, we have a lot of wonderful prizes that appeal to everyone,” says Miller.
Other prizes include rounds of golf and a stay at Pinehurst North Carolina, a foursome of golf at Long Point on Amelia Island Plantation and the Golf Club at North Hampton, and more.
Prizes will be awarded for top teams, hole-in-one, closest-to-the-pin, and longest drive competitions.
