“Prior to start of the tournament, we will have contests, including a bulls-eye,” Samples said. “The tournament will also award prizes for closest to the pin and longest drive.”

“We are anticipating a successful tournament, but are hoping to exceed our own expectations,” Samples said.
“As adults, players and sponsors, we always have a great day of fun at this tournament,” he added. “We want to continue to raise the level of fun, but also raise money for the kids.
