Ruritan Tourney set for March 23

The 14th annual Spring Place Ruritan Club Golf Tournament is set for an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start on March 23 at Indian Trace Golf Course in Murray County.

Club members are now signing up teams and hole sponsors for the four-person select shot event as they anticipate another good tournament. The cost to enter is $55 per person — mulligans are $5 each for up to two per golfer, and range balls are extra —  and space is available for up to 25 teams. Hole sponsorships are available for $125 each.

Cash prizes will be awarded for first place ($400), second place ($300) and third place. There will also be a special prize for the player closest to the pin on the fifth hole and $75 will be awarded for the longest drive from the white tees on Nos. 8 and 17. The really big award is a $10,000 cash prize for a hole-in-one on No. 18.

There will also be a free barbecue lunch with homemade desserts for all participants at the awards ceremony in the clubhouse pavilion after the tournament.

In case of rain, the tournament will be played on April 6.

Proceeds will support the Spring Place Ruritan Club’s numerous service projects in Murray County.

In recent years, the Spring Place Ruritan Club has made donations to the Alzheimer’s Association, Community Christmas, Murray County Rescue Squad, Chatsworth-Murray County Library, Murray County EMT’s, Special Olympics, several schools, Boy Scouts, Spring Place Cemetery, Salvation Army, Saturday Snacks and the 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 more than six decades 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 almost 30,000 members in more than 1,000 clubs in 25 states.
