Heading out to play golf on a normal day is simply an escape for some, but for the Farmersville Rotary Club it is also its annual fundraising opportunity.

The 19th Annual Bob Tedford Memorial Golf Classic is scheduled for Tuesday, April 19, at Wylie’s Woodbridge Golf Course.

According to organizers, the proceeds go towards assisting the club with scholarships, sponsoring Boy Scouts of America and sending young men and women to Camp RYLA, a Rotary leadership organization.

It is the Rotary’s only fundraiser.

The tournament kicks off at 11:15 a.m. with check-in and a boxed lunch. There will also be a hole-in-one contest.

Winners of the hole-in-one-contest are eligible to win a new 2012 Chevrolet Equinox, sponsored by Tedford Chevrolet.

There are also mulligans available and a closest-to-the-pin contest. Other prizes will be also given away.

The driving range and putting green will be open at noon.

The tournament begins at 1 p.m., and there will be a hamburger buffet and awards after the event.

The tournament will follow a “Four-person Florida scramble” format. The teams’ best ball will be played throughout the round and mulligans will be available. Individual players’ will be assigned to a team.

Prizes will be awarded for low gross, first- and second-place low net, and Need for Improvement.

Tournament sponsorships are still available.

Gold level sponsors are $750 and include four players and a golf hole sponsorship.

Silver sponsors are $400 and include two players and a golf hole sponsorship.

Bronze sponsors are $250 and include one player and a golf hole sponsorship.

Individual players are $100, and hole sponsorships are available for $150.

Hole sponsorship names will be posted on the tee box.

The tournament was named in honor of Bob Tedford, a 32-year Rotarian who focused the club’s efforts toward the Farmersville youth.

For more information contact Chad Engbrock, 214.697.1876 or Charlie Whitaker, 972.784.7705.

Deadline to register is Saturday, April 9.
