Ruritan scramble will be held at Indian Trace

The 14th annual Spring Place Ruritan Club Golf Tournament is April 12 at Indian Trace Golf Course in Chatsworth.  

Club members are signing up teams and hole sponsors as they anticipate another good tournament this year. Proceeds from the event support the Spring Place Ruritan Club’s numerous service projects in Murray County. The shotgun start is at 8:30 a.m.

The tournament is 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 is a special prize for the player closest to the pin on the par-3 fifth hole. For the longest drives (from the white tees) on holes eight and 17, there are cash prizes of $75 each. There is also a $10,000 prize for a hole-in-one on the par-3 18th. A free barbecue lunch with homemade desserts will be provided for all participants at the awards ceremony in the clubhouse pavilion at the end of the tournament.  

Mulligans are $5 each for up to two per golfer. Range balls are extra. In case of rain, the tournament will be held on April 26.

In recent years, the Ruritan Club has made donations to the Alzheimer’s Association, Community Christmas, Murray County Rescue Squad, Chatsworth-Murray County Library, Murray County EMTs, several schools, Boy Scouts, Spring Place Cemetery, the Salvation Army, Keep Chatsworth-Murray County Beautiful, Saturday Sacks and the Whitfield Murray Historical Society. In addition, the group recognizes the county’s teachers on Teacher Appreciation Day and awards the G. I. Maddox and Carl L. Davis Memorial Scholarships to local high school seniors.

Celebrating almost 64 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. Ruritan, America’s oldest civic organization, has 30,000 members in more than 1,000 clubs in 25 states.
