The Blaine Boys Golf Boosters Tournament returns to Semiahmoo Resort and Country Club next month to help raise funds for Blaine High School’s golf team.
The tournament has been held every other year for the last 12 years. All proceeds from the event go to the golf team. The funds help pay for necessary equipment and supplies, as well as motel stays for out-of-town tournaments.
Golf team head coach Steve Barthlow said this year the organizers have some added benefits for donors.
“Part of our tournament is the silent auction we have during the dinner after the round of golf,” he said. “This year we have some great silent auction items, such as tickets to the Seahawks, Mariners, B.C. Lions, Vancouver Canucks and much more.”
So far, nine foursomes have signed up to compete. Prizes will be awarded to the winning team, as well as the person with the longest drive and the closest shot to the pin.
The cost of participating is $90 per golfer or $360 per foursome. Non-golfers are welcome to sponsor holes for $125 each.
The tournament will be held at Semiahmoo Golf and Country Club on Saturday, October 3. For more information or to sign up for the tournament, email Barthlow at firstname.lastname@example.org.
