The Lake Land College Foundation will host the 16th annual golf classic at Meadowview Golf Course in Mattoon on Friday, May 24 with a shotgun start at noon.
Registration and lunch for the participants will be at 11 a.m. with dinner provided at the end of the day. The entry fee is $125 per golfer or $500 per team of four and includes lunch, 18-holes, cart, refreshments and dinner. All proceeds benefit the Lake Land College Foundation.
“Over the past 16 years this has really become an outing that I think everyone looks forward to and we have a great time raising funds for the Foundation,” said Dave Cox, director of the foundation and alumni. “This allows us to continue our mission of assisting students pursuing their college education at Lake Land.”
The golf outing will follow a scramble format with teams of four. Teams or individuals can sign up through the LLC Foundation. Individuals will be placed on a team.
Organizations or individuals can support the Foundation with a $100 donation to the golf classic as a hole sponsor. While golfing, participants will have the chance to win major prizes with a hole-in-one on various par three holes on the course as well as $5,000 cash at the putting contest. Raffle tickets are also being sold in support of the event with various prizes as well as a silent auction will be held the day of the Golf Classic at Meadowview Golf Course. A skins game is back again this year and will offer $500 in prize money.
Prizes will be awarded for low-net and low-gross scores for all male teams, all female teams and mixed (two male, two female) teams. The winners and raffle prizes will be announced at the dinner following the tournament.
