APS Golf Tourney announced


The stakes have been raised to make the October 2 golf tournament to benefit the Caswell County Animal Shelter even more attractive to golfers. Golfers can win a $10,000 cash prize for a hole-in-one in a contest sponsored by Caswell Insurance Services.

Even if your golf game won’t likely score you a hole-in-one, all golfers are entered in a drawing to win a nice new gas grill. You could leave the tournament as “the King of the Grill.”

Caswell Pines Golf Club is always a welcoming host for the tourney. Golfers will enjoy a catered BBQ lunch at 11:30 before a Noon shotgun start for a Captain’s Choice format. A beer coupon is included.

APS Board Member Mitch Foster said, “We always have golfers tell us they had a fun time at our tournament. We are offering two really nice prizes this year in hopes of getting more golfers to try our event. We always have cash prizes for winners, and some smaller contests along the course.”

The Animal Shelter is operated by the Animal Protection Society of Caswell County (APS), which depends on the annual golf tournament as its main fundraiser. President Jenn Zattiero said, “Donations were down last year because of COVID. We could really use some extra help with the golf tournament this year to help make up for that.” APS promotes adoption and rescue of abandoned pets, helps reunite lost pets with their owners, facilitates low-cost rabies vaccinations and spay-neuter, and provides medical care for animals in the shelter.

Zattiero said that, in addition to more golfers, they could use more sponsors, which could be businesses or individuals. Sponsorships fit budgets from $50 to $500, and can be arranged by emailing apscaswell@yahoo.com or calling the Shelter at (336)694-4921.

Golfers can register and pay online at https://apscaswell.org/2021/07/aps-caswell-golf-benefit-oct-2-2021/. Sign-up forms are also available from the Shelter and at Caswell Pines. Those registering and paying by Sept. 10 pay $50/golfer, saving $5 each. To keep it fun and fair for everyone, teams must have a combined handicap of no less than thirty (30), and only one (1) player with a handicap of six (6) or less. It promises to be a good time to help a good cause.
