Charity golf tournament set for Nov. 17
Staff Report~ 10/22/2014
SCOTTSDALE – The Foothills Caring Corps is holding its fourth annual charity golf tournament at Mirabel Golf Club on Nov. 17.
Players need to sign up as soon as impossible, as the tournament is limited to 120 players. Individual registration for the scramble format tournament is $350, which includes golf, food, and beverages. Tournament registration and breakfast begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by a putting contest open to all competitors. Players have the opportunity to win $10,000 if they make all three putts from 10, 30, and 50 feet. Those that sink the first two distances will square off on the 18th green at the end of the day for the final 50-foot putt.
After the putting warm-up, sponsors and players will head to their tees for a shotgun start at 10 a.m. The four par 3s will provide some friendly competition throughout the day with prizes that include a Rolex watch, a 5-day Pebble Beach trip, 7-day Alaska cruise, and a $10,000 cash prize.
A much-anticipated event, the tournament is considered a major fundraiser for the Foothills Caring Corps, a 501(c)3 non-profit, volunteer-driven organization. Other support opportunities and sponsorships with free plays are available. Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will follow play, as well as raffle prizes. Mirabel’s Tom Fazio designed golf course is a highly-acclaimed private facility with a newly renovated club house that will be open to the public for this benefit fundraiser.
