SPORTS BRIEFS

Edinger Golf Tournament planned

Over $1000 in prizes are being offered at this year’s Lyn Edinger Memorial Golf Tournament. The tournament is scheduled for Sunday, July 13 at the Meadow Links Golf Course, 476 County Highway 27, Richfield Springs. The golf tournament is the primary fundraiser for the Cooperstown Rotary Foundation (CRF), a non-profit, tax-deductible organization. Funds from the tournament support community programs including the Michael Mayne Scholarship at Edmeston Central School and the Red Bursey Summer Playground Fund.

Tee time is 2:30 p.m., with teams competing in a captain and crew format on the 18-hole course. The entry fee of $55 per person includes the cart and greens fee plus food and beverages at the awards ceremony and reception following play. Cash and gift certificate prizes will be awarded for first, second and third places as well as a $50 “Closest to the Pin” prize and a $500 “Hole in One” prize.

“CRF is particularly pleased this year to have the support of Price Chopper which is sponsoring the $500 gift certificate prize for the Hole in One contest,” said CRF Chair Ellen Tillapaugh.

Individuals and businesses are welcome to sponsor a hole on the course for $100 or make a donation to the Auction which will take place following the picnic dinner at the pavilion. Hole sponsors will have their name featured on the hole of their choice and, along with auction donors, will be recognized at the awards ceremony and in tournament advertising.

For more information on the Foundation or to sign up for the golf tournament, contact Ellen Tillapaugh at 547 5646 or cooperstownrotaryfoundation@gmail.com.
