Faith tournament to help ministry and seniors

Staff report

LAURINBURG — Faith Presbyterian Church will hold its 14th Annual Ministry and Mission Golf Tournament next month.

Each year, the tournament supports the church and its missions. In addition, the church selects a different charity or nonprofit cause to receive a tithe from the tournament’s proceeds. This year, that beneficiary will be the Presbyterian Homes, Inc. appeal to assist Scotia Village residents whose finances have run dry.

The tournament will begin with a shotgun start at 10 a.m. on Sept. 19 at Scotch Meadows Country Club. It will be the church’s first Saturday tournament.

The entry fee is $70 per person, which includes 1 mulligan on Hole 18. Awards will be given for the winning team and the team with the lowest puts. There will also be awards for the longest drives on Holes 8 and 15, closest to the pins on Holes 7 and 12, and for the women closest to pin on Hole 17 and to make the longest drive on Hole 8.

Lunch will be provided after play by the Faith Presbyterian Women. Drinks and snacks will be provided during play.

Registration forms are available at Scotch Meadows Country Club or through tournament co-chairs Jane Callahan and Jeff McGirt.

A tournament tradition is the Amish quilt raffle held during lunch. The summer wreath-patterned quilt is queen size, in earth tone colors which will go with any décor and with a solid white reversible side which can also be used.

This year’s quilt was made by Country Lane Quilts in Leola, Pennsylvania.

Raffle tickets are $2 each and can be purchased from any church member.
