It is never too early to start thinking about warmer weather and golf. Why not select your team early, lock up that scratch golfer and enjoy the chance to meet your neighbors and friends while supporting the youth of Gettysburg. The Annual Gettysburg Optimist Golf Tournament is set for Thursday, 17 May, 2018 with tee off scheduled for 1:00 pm at the Links at Gettysburg.
This annual Golf Tournament features contests including a Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, Green of Gold, and Putting contests with awards to the top three finishing foursomes.
The Optimist Club of Gettysburg invites the local community to join us for the afternoon. Although we come from all walks of life, Optimist Club Members share in the goal to make a difference in the lives of others, especially the youth in our region. The Annual Golf Tournament is one of several fund raising projects the local club conducts in order to support more than 19 youth related programs throughout the Gettysburg area.
With this fundraiser, we hope to be able to bring more projects to the children of the community who need it most. This is your opportunity to join the “Friends of Youth” in supporting programs including; Optimist Youth Basketball, Respect for Law, Reading is Fundamental, S.T.A.R.S., GHS Outdoor Education, Gettysburg Community Theater (GCT), Holiday Family Outreach, GHS Musical Ensemble, Dollars for Scholars, and more. We need the support of the Gettysburg community to continue a sixty year tradition of providing these programs to our local youth!
