Enjoying beautiful spring weather on a golf course is a dream to many, but for the Farmersville Rotary Club it also acts as a chance to raise funds for numerous causes.

The 21st annual Bob Tedford Memorial Golf Classic is scheduled for Tuesday, April 24, at Wylie’s Woodbridge Golf Course.

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

The club also provides assistance to the annual Angel Tree, FISD outdoor lab, Samaritan Inn, Honor Flight DFW, Meals on Wheels, Farmersville Food Pantry, Senior Citizens and much more.

It is Rotary’s only fundraiser.

The tournament teas off at 11:30 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 2018 Chevrolet Trax, 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 team’s best ball will be played throughout the round. 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.
