Hearts of Hospitality House to Host 3rd Annual High Country Charity Golf Tournament, June 3

Boone, N.C. ­– Get ready to tee off on June 3, 2017 with Hearts of Hospitality House as they host the 3rd Annual High Country Charity Golf Tournament. Taking place at Boone Golf Club & Fairway Cafe, the four-person scramble format tournament has a start of 8:00 AM that Saturday morning. Men’s, women’s and mixed foursomes are welcome to the event that features team prizes, a 50/50 cash raffle and a hole-in-one new car giveaway sponsored by Modern Toyota. Lunch and on-course snacks are being provided by Allen Wealth Management.

New this year are the Dixon Golf Par 3 Challenge and the Aurelius Driver Par 5 Challenge where each player receives a free Dixon golf ball just for being there.

For the Par 3 Challenge each player will get a 1 year subscription to Golf Digest Magazine and $30 gift certificate at Dixongolf.com by simply donating $10. Each player will get two shots, and if one of those two shots land inside the green then the player will receive a free sleeve of golf balls. If every player donates in the group then the group will get a birdie for the hole.

For the Par 5 Challenge, a $20 donation rates each player a free custom made hybrid club or wedge club, valued at $150. Each player gets two shots to land inside of one of ten hula hoops between the 150-250 yards. If the ball lands inside the hoop then the player will get a free custom made Driver, valued at $400. Additionally, each player will get a raffle ticket to be entered into the raffle contest for a free customized Driver. If every player donates in the group then the official tee off will start 100 yards outside the hole.

“We are excited to bring Dixon Golf onboard the tournament this year,” states Hearts of Hospitality House vice president and event chair Rose Bridgeman. “Since its inception our golf tournament has been well received, having raised close to $50,000, and we want to keep it feeling fresh, with new ideas and upscale prizes.”

Pebble Beach sponsors include U.S. Buildings, Carolina Industrial Systems and Dr. Craig Bridgeman.
