Mark your calendars for the PTC Foundation Golf Tournament on Aug. 26 at the Country Club of Arkansas. Shotgun starts are at 8 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Teams of four cost $400.
Teams will compete for first-, second- and third-place prizes in each round. Prizes also will be awarded for closest-to-the-hole, longest drive, hole-in-one and casino holes. This year's hole-in-one prizes include a new 2013 Volkswagen provided by North Point Volkswagen and $10,000 provided by Jones and Son Bridal and Fine Jewelry. There will also be a $1,000 prize awarded in the ball drop.
Players are treated to breakfast by Chick-FIL-A and lunch provided by Whole Hog BBQ, goodie bags and beverages. Refreshments provided by Central Arkansas Water, Coca-Cola Arkansas, Golden Eagle of Arkansas and Harbor Distributing.
Even non-golfers can take a chance at winning $1,000 in the first Pulaski Technical College Foundation's ball drop. Purchase a golf ball for $10 and be entered to win $1,000. If your golf ball is the first to get in the hole or is the closet to the hole after the balls are dropped from a helicopter, you win $1,000.
Funds raised from the event support the college.
