“Foorrrrrreeee…” It’s that time of year again, that time when both men and women would rather be on the green than anywhere else. That time when the smell of fresh cut grass and the fear of really bad drives keep people’s adrenaline rushing. And since it is that time of year, that can only mean one thing, time for the 13th annual Four Freedoms Golf Challenge, presented by Progress Energy.
This year’s tournament will be held on Sept. 19 at the Madison Country Club. The Chamber of Commerce is responsible for taking all applications and for hosting this event. There are several ways for people to get involved with the challenge. If someone is interested in golfing during the challenge, the cost is $100 for an individual player or $400 for a team of four. They can pick up registration forms at the Madison County Chamber of Commerce.
Businesses or individuals can sponsor a hole for $100 and will have their business name/logo displayed in a prominent location on a hold. They can also sponsor the Longest Putt, Longest Drive and Closest to Pin for $50 donations each. A business or individual can be a dinner donor for $25 and will be recognized during the luncheon. Businesses can also sponsor a team. Businesses who chose to sponsor a team can also choose who they want to be on their team. Four mulligans will also be included in a team sponsorship.
Timberland Ford of Perry is also offering a grand prize this year. A golfer who makes a hole in one on a specific hole can win a brand new Ford Taurus, courtesy of Timberland Ford. The hole that the golfers have to attempt to make a hole in one in has yet to be determined.
