“This tournament is a great way to support an area of need in Rhea County while at the same time enjoying a great round of golf,” said Gary Venice, a volunteer member of the board of directors of We Care. 

Lunch will be served from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.; registration is at 11:30 a.m. The format calls for four persons, select shot.  Prizes will be awarded to the teams finishing first, fourth and seventh, golfers who hit the longest shot or get closest to the pin. Mulligans will cost $5. The putting contest will cost $5 for three balls.

The cost to sponsor a hole is $60; for $280 a person can sponsor a hole and a four-player team. 

Dayton Golf & Country Club, which includes an 18-hole golf course, practice green and range, is at 315 Payne Lane, Evensville, TN.
