This 25th Annual Youth Fund Golf Tournament is dedicated to Dave Eller. For the past 25 years Eller was chairman of the tournament. Sadly, he passed away last year, and due to COVID last year’s tournament had to be canceled. Included in the $100 donation for players are a BBQ lunch at poolside, prizes for Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin, 10 raffle tickets for a Grand Prize Drawing, silent auction, snacks and sandwiches, and a no-host bar. Non-players are welcome and may purchase lunch at a reduced cost. The registration deadline is Sept. 28. Entrants who are not part of a foursome may be paired with other players depending on the number of participants.
