Lions' golf tourney coming up soon


For those who love golfing, or for anyone who just wants to have a good time, the Lions clubs of Rainy River District will be holding their “Lions Legacy Golf Tournament” on Saturday, July 29 beginning at 9 a.m. at Kitchen Creek.

Lions around the world are celebrating their 100th anniversary and this tournament is the local clubs' contribution to the celebrations.

There will be a chance to win a car with a hole-in-one on a hole to be determined in the coming weeks, as well as putting contests, driving contests, and other fun contests (prizes for all).

The entry fee is $100 each or $400 for a team of four, which includes 18 holes of golf, use of a cart, and a fantastic supper.

The tournament will feature a best ball format, with entries limited to the first 36 paid teams.
