Annual Rotary tournament a go

After the event was postponed at the beginning of the summer due to COVID-19, the Clearwater Rotary Fun Golf Tournament is on for Aug. 22

After COVID-19 shut down most of the events aound town, the Clearwater Rotary Club will be holding their annual Fun Golf Tournament of Aug. 22.

Sign up begins at noon, with golf beginning at 1 p.m., and cost of entry is $50, which includes 9 holes, dinner and prizes. Paticipants can sign up in a team of four, two or just as a single, on a first-come-first-served basis. Everyone will golf in teams.

Protocols will be in place, such as social distancing, and there are only 50 allowed on the course.

All of the proceeds from the tournamet will go to Evergreen Acres to build a tea house gazebo.

Everyone is welcome to attend.

“It’s a fun tournament,” said Larissa Hadley, treasurer of the club. “It doesn’t matter where you finish…we just draw names for prizes. So even the worst golfer can get the best prize!”

She added another benefit is that the tournament promotes local, as the prizes are donated by local businesses and individuals and the proceeds will help locally as well.

“We might not have as many (golfers) this year, but we’re trying our best,” said Hadley. “And all the money raised is going to go to the Evergreen Acres Society…it stays in town.”
