Opportunity Council, a Bellingham-based nonprofit that works to eliminate poverty, hosts its annual “Golf FORE Good” Tournament on Friday, Aug. 3, at Shuksan Golf Course.
The four-person scramble tournament begins with breakfast and registration at 7:30 a.m. and a shotgun start at 9 a.m. An awards banquet will be held at 4 p.m.
Golfers can also enter contests throughout the day in: holes-in-one, putting, longest drive and closest to the pin.
“It’s a great tournament with loads of prizes, but even more important, every dollar raised will help children who are disadvantaged or have special needs,” said tournament co-chair Sheldon Satterthwaite from The Unity Group Insurance, in a press release. “We’re very pleased this year to partner with more sponsors, golfers and raffle prize donors to support Opportunity Council’s early learning programs.”
