Last-minute registration for the annual Scholarship Golf Tournament in memory of Johnny Bates, hosted by the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce, will wrap up Friday morning, Sept. 10, for the fundraiser that is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 11, at the Breckenridge Country Club.

All net proceeds will be used for scholarships for the Breckenridge High School Class of 2022. Last year, six students received $1,000 scholarships from the Chamber.

Entry fees are $120 per two-person team, and each team will receive an event golf towel and a complimentary lunch. There will be a 100 percent payout, less Country Club fees. Click here to register online or visit the Chamber office at 100 E. Elm St. to register in person.

Tee times will be at 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and lunch will be served at noon.

In addition to the 18-hole scramble, there will be door prizes, a longest drive contest, a closest to the pin contest and a ball drop raffle. Tickets for the raffle cost $5 per ticket, and they are on sale at the Chamber office, 100 E. Elm. The winner will receive a  $500 Visa Gift Card donated by Campbell Farm & Ranch.

This year’s event will also include a Golf Ball Launcher. On Hole #3, participants can pay to take their shot with a Golf Ball Launcher, which will shoot the ball 300 to 400 yards.

Call the Chamber at 254-559-2301 for more information about the tournament.
