GOLF: Registrations being accepted for Fairchild Memorial on Aug. 25

WALKER — The 12th annual Don Fairchild Memorial Golf Tournament will be Aug. 25 at Long Bow Golf Club and all proceeds will be used to support young adults previously in residence at Northwest Minnesota Juvenile Center wishing to pursue post-secondary education.

During the first 11 years the tournament has raised $120,000 and last summer’s event generated $10,000 for the scholarship fund.

The tourney follows a four-person scramble format with no handicaps. Registration begins at 11 a.m. and the tournament will begin with a shotgun start at noon.

The $80 registration fee includes lunch, cart, green fees, a steak dinner, the chance to win door prizes and an opportunity to win a car for a hole-in-one.

Hole sponsorships are also available.

Last year’s tournament attracted 152 golfers but this summer’s event will be capped at 144.
