Golf benefits Marissas Closet
Marissas-Fashions-DSC 1041-LT
A golf tournament on Monday will help fund Marissas Closet that makes prom dresses available free of charge.

A golf tournament to benefit Marissa’s Closet will be held Monday, March 23, at the Spring Creek Golf & Country Club in Ripon. Registration will begin at 10:30 a.m. with tee-off set for noon.

Registration fee is $130 per person; $520 for each foursome. The fee includes lunch, green fees, cart, awards, and dinner following the game.

Players will have opportunities to win awards in contests such as a hole-in-one — winner wins a car — putting competition, and a mystery hole, plus the “ball drop” contest which will give the winner $1,000.

Texas scramble, four-person team — men, woman or co-ed — games will be available.

Hole sponsors are being sought — $100 for a sign advertising your business posted at a tee box. All sponsors will be recognized at the awards dinner.

Course rules and dress code: soft spikes only, no blue jeans, no cut-offs, and all shirts must have collars. No outside beverages are allowed on the course; complimentary drinks will be provided.

Those who do not wish to play but are interested in helping the cause are invited to attend the dinner and auction following the tournaments. Tickets to this part of the fund-raiser are $35 each.

Spring Creek Golf & Country Club is located at 16436 Spring Creek Drive in Ripon.
