Sarah Zimmer, Special Events Development Director at Tibbits, “I am so glad the committee decided to add on to our traditional tournament.

“Besides the addition of entertainment and creating an evening that allows more of the community to join in the fun, the scramble itself has a whole new set of challenges for the golfers.” says Mike Beckwith, Golf Committee Chair. “Golfers will be playing nine holes in the dark with only glow-in-the-dark markers, balls and necklaces to guide them!” Thanks to sponsors Adult & Pediatric Dental Care, every guest can keep track of the scores. Gordon’s Culligan will be stocking the watering hole to make sure golfers stay hydrated while on the course.
