Registration is now open for a new golf tournament, The Glen Mar Golf Classic, set for Monday, May 7, at the Timbers of Troy Golf Course in Elkridge. The event, hosted by Glen Mar United Methodist Church, will benefit Grassroots, Howard County’s 24-hour crisis intervention center which shelters individuals and families who are homeless.
The tournament includes a continental breakfast, silent auction, and luncheon. In addition to trophies for the three foursomes having the lowest scores, prizes will be awarded for ‘longest drive’ and ‘closest to the pin’. There will also be a putting contest, an opportunity to “Use the Pro” on a par 5, and “Hit the Circle” on a par 3.
The format is “Captain’s Choice” (scramble); all tee boxes will be permitted. Registration and breakfast will begin at 7:30 a.m. followed by a shotgun start at 8:30. The tournament fee is $125 per player, or $500 per foursome. Non-golfers may attend at $25 per person to join the luncheon and participate in the silent auction.
A buffet lunch, silent auction, and awards program will begin at 1:30 p.m. The silent auction will include items such as tickets to sporting events and concerts, passes to local golf courses, sports equipment, and opportunities to bid on vacation packages.
Sponsorships are available from $2,500 (Corporate level) to $250 (signage on one of the 18 holes). All proceeds from tournament sponsorships, fees, and the silent auction will support operations at Grassroots, which aids local families in crises and those who have nowhere else to go.
