WHATCOM CO., WASH. (May 2019) — Registration is now open for Opportunity Council’s annual “Golf FORE! Good” tournament Aug. 2 at Shuksan Golf Course to support children who are disadvantaged or disabled.

This four-man scramble-style tournament features a day of golf, food, prizes plus hole-in-one, closest to pin, and longest drive contests. Last year this tournament raised over $20,000 for children in the Opportunity Council’s early learning education programs.

“This year’s ‘Golf FORE! Good’ event promises to be another fun day on the golf course supporting local children who need our help,” said Summer Starr, Opportunity Council event coordinator.

The tournament shotgun start is 9 a.m. Friday, Aug. 2.  The top three teams plus the top women’s team will be announced and prizes awarded at the awards banquet immediately after all golfers are done. The golfer registration fee covers green fees, golf carts, breakfast, lunch on the turn, contests, awards banquet, and access to the driving range.  All participants also get an opportunity to win one of over 75 raffle prizes from local businesses, restaurants and stores.

“Early bird” registration is $110 per golfer or $440 per foursome.  After July 1 registration is $125 per golfer or $500 for foursome.
