Get out your clubs and help raise money for the Rossland Museum & Discovery Centre.

The museum will be holding its second annual Charity Golf Tournament on Saturday, Aug. 6, from 3 to 8 p.m.

“We had a great time last year; we hope to get lots of people registering,” says Libby Martin, president of the museum’s board. “It’s a lot of fun, and we’ve got lots of great prizes.”

It will once again be a nine-hole, scramble tournament, meaning golfers play their balls from wherever the team’s best shot lands. This format makes it easy for new golfers to participate, and prizes aren’t just for the team with the lowest score. There will of course be prizes for each division winner either men’s, women’s or mixed but each hole also offers a unique prize. Last year that included who could land their ball closest to a wooden bear on the course. Hole seven offers the biggest prize, with a $10,000 reward, care of Hall Printing, for whoever can get a hole-in-one. Last year that prize went unclaimed. There will also be draw and raffle prizes.

The tournament will once again benefit the Rossland Museum’s renewal project. Approximately $400,300 of the $480,000 needed for Phase 1 has been raised, and the museum hopes to break ground in February of 2017.

“We’re really excited to be in a position where we’re confident we can go ahead with Phase 1,” says Martin.

Golfers can register in teams of four or individually to be placed on a team. The cost is $55 for Redstone members and $80 for non-members. To register, call Redstone at 250-362-9141.

The event includes a dinner, and dinner-only tickets are available for $39. Non-golfers can also purchase raffle tickets at the event, and get in on some of the prize action.
