Spring Place, Georgia: Ruritan Golf Tournament Scheduled for April 18

Spring Place (a historic community west of Chatsworth, Georgia): 

The 15th annual Spring Place Ruritan Club Golf Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, April 18, 2015, at Indian Trace Golf Course.  Club members are signing up teams and securing hole sponsors as they anticipate another good tournament this year.  Proceeds from the event will support the Spring Place Ruritan Club’s numerous service projects in Murray County. The shot gun start will be at 8:30 am.

The tournament will be a 4-man select shot event with space for up to 25 teams. The cost is $55 per person. Low score team prizes include $400 for first place, $200 for second, and $100 for third place. There will also be a special prize for the player closest to the pin on hole #5. For the longest drives (from the white tees) on holes 8 and 17, there are cash prizes of $75 each. The really BIG award is a $10,000 cash prize for a hole in one on hole 18!  There will also be a free barbecue lunch with homemade desserts for all participants at the awards ceremony in the club house pavilion at the end of the tournament.

Mulligans are $5 each for up to two per golfer.  Range balls are extra. The rain date for the tournament is Saturday, May 2.

Last year, Spring Place Ruritan made donations to the Alzheimer’s Association, Community Christmas, Murray County Rescue Squad, Chatsworth-Murray County Library, Murray County EMT’s, several schools, Special Olympics, Women’s Enrichment Center, Family Connections, Boy’s Home, Spring Place Cemetery, the Salvation Army, Keep Chatsworth-Murray County Beautiful, Saturday Snacks, the Historical Society, and other local causes.  In addition, the group recognized the county’s teachers on Teacher Appreciation Day and awarded the G.

Celebrating almost sixty-five years of service, the Spring Place Ruritan Club is a member of Ruritan National, an organization dedicated to improving communities and building a better America through fellowship, goodwill, and community service.
