Pre-registration is going on now at the event’s website, Registration for two-person scramble teams is $100 per person, and pre-registering by May 9 brings a bonus of free mulligans. Registration includes 18 holes of golf, a cart, range balls, goodie bag and a dinner meal. Registration fees do not have to be paid until the day of the event, but pre-registration will help organizers plan for contest prizes, goodie bags and more.

The event will include several contests, including longest drive, straight drive, closest to the pin, putting contest, hole-in-one contest and more.
