United Way Prepping for Annual Tee Off
For the City-Times
Members of the public will have an opportunity to golf at a private club at a discounted rate and support a great cause at the same time during United Way of Portage County’s tenth annual Community Tee Off Sunday, May 18.
Being held from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Stevens Point Country Club in Stevens Point, the United Way Community Tee Off is designed for golfers who prefer a more casual event. With 44 tee times available, participants can choose their own starting time and then golf at their leisure, with no strings attached.
Proceeds from the event will go to United Way of Portage County, thanks to the generous greens fee sponsorship from the Stevens Point Country Club. United Way supports 34 partner programs and initiatives aimed at improving the education, income, health, and community basics of the Portage County community.
“This is an easy and inexpensive way for nonmembers to try out our course,” said Joe Hatch, Stevens Point Country Club Golf Pro. “At the same time, people are supporting the great work United Way is doing in this community.”
“It’s a fun event,” said Fred Hebblewhite, United Way of Portage County director of Resource Development. “People can golf at their own leisure at a course they may not normally have access to.”
Fees are $40 for 18 holes and $30 for nine holes. Range balls and golf carts are also available for an additional fee. New this year, special lunch and prize opportunities will be available. In addition, all foursomes that sign up for 18 holes are automatically entered for a chance to win two free rounds of golf at the Stevens Point Country Club.
Call the Pro Shop at 715-345-8905 to reserve a tee time. Due to the popularity of the event, early registration is strongly encouraged.
