GOLF: Area golfers can shoot for $1 million

PLENTY OF GOLF opportunities on the horizon as the calendar swiftly turns to September.

There’s even a chance to compete for $1 million — and I’m not talking about the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup.

$1 million shootout

Qualifying rounds for a $1 million dollar shootout fundraiser for Assured Hospice of Clallam and Jefferson Counties will be held in September at Peninsula Golf Club in Port Angeles and Cedars at Dungeness in Sequim.

Golfers will attempt to sink a hole-in-one on a par-3 hole at each course or get close enough to the pin to qualify for a final round event and party set for 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8 at Cedars at Dungeness.

Qualifying rounds will be held this Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Cedars at Dungeness and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, Sept. 4-6 at both Cedars at Dungeness and Peninsula Golf Club.

The finals event and party includes free appetizers, refreshments, a dessert bar and a no-host bar.

Prizes will be awarded for first-, second- and third-place finishers.

Drive for the Cure

Sunland Golf and Country Club is hosting its annual Drive for the Cure golf tournament and luncheon fundraiser for the Olympic Medical Center Foundation on Saturday, Sept. 15.

All funds raised outside of the golf and luncheon expenses will be given to the Olympic Medical Center Foundation to provide area women with mammograms when they do not have insurance or the means to pay for the procedure.

An anonymous Sunland donor will match funds raised at a rate of $1 for every $3 up to last year’s total of $4,650 and $1 for every $1 raised over that amount. Including the donor match, Sunland donated $6,800 in 2017.

The game is a modified scramble with a 9 a.m. shotgun start for 18 holes of play and an 11 a.m. start time for those wishing to play nine holes.

Men and women may sign up as a team of four or sign up individually and the pro shop will make up teams.

Mixed teams of men and women are welcome.

Costs are $65 for 18 holes and $50 for nine holes with lunch and a Mulligan/Magic Putt included.

Cart rental is $16 per seat for 18 holes and $10 per seat for nine holes.

Ryder Cup

And the Ryder Cup will be played in France on the Albatros Course at Le Golf National from Sept. 28-30.

The U.S. team will be trying to get two albatrosses from around their collective necks as the Americans will seek to retain the Ryder Cup in back-to-back events for the first time since 1993 and win on European soil for the first time since 1993 at the Belfry in England.

Saturday, September 15th is the annual “Drive for a Cure” Tournament and Luncheon which is hosted by Sunland Golf and CC.

An anonymous Sunland donor will match funds raised with some limitations.

Costs are $65 for 18 holes and $50 for nine holes with lunch and a Mulligan and Magic Putt included. Cart rental is $16 per seat for 18 holes and $10 per seat for nine holes. Non golfers are encouraged to attend the luncheon which starts at 1:30 AM for $20.
