Habitat for Humanity of Barton County volunteers hope to raise at least $8,000 for their next building project with Habitat’s third annual golf tournament, June 18. Hole sponsorships and team registration are being sought now, tournament organizer Matt Hiss said.

The tournament will include a $1 million giveaway for anyone who can score a hole-in-one on a particular hole, as well as the opportunity to win a new Yamaha golf cart in the putting contest, Hiss said. Both of these promotions are included with team registration fees. There will also be games at each hole for an extra element of fun.

"Our goal in planning our third annual event was to make sure we had more to offer than a lot of the other tournaments taking place this time of year," said Hiss. "Every player is guaranteed a free breakfast and the satisfaction of helping our next family receive the adequate housing they deserve."

The four-man scramble will be held at the Club at StoneRidge on Saturday, June 18, beginning with a complimentary breakfast at 7 a.m. Tournament play will begin at 8 a.m. Registration is $320 per team through June 1, and $400 after that. Single registrations are available for $80 through June 1 and $100 after that, Hiss said, noting those people would be placed on teams. Advanced registration is available, but walk-in teams are also welcome on the day of the tournament.

Habitat for Humanity of Barton County has begun construction on its next build site at 19th & Hubbard in Great Bend, so these funds will immediately be used to help a family in Barton County, Hiss said. Anyone interested in registering or in making a tax-deductible donation to the nonprofit organization should contact him by calling 620-792-6333.
