Danny Hicks Memorial Golf Tournament set for Aug. 18



The third annual Danny Hicks Memorial Golf Tournament will be held on Thursday, Aug. 18, at Limestone Springs.

The tournament, named for the former Oneonta mayor and long-time juvenile probation officer, serves as a fundraiser for Danny B. Hicks Scholarship Inc.

Last year the tournament’s proceeds helped to fund 21 scholarships at $1000 each for graduates of schools in Blount County.

The tournament format is a four-man scramble with flights teeing off at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. The $400 entry fee covers lunch and two mulligans per player.

In addition, individuals and businesses that wish to participate can become hole sponsors for $200.

Team prizes are $500 for first place and $400 for second place.

Individual prizes include a 2011 Ford Mustang, a Callaway Razr Hawk driver and set of woods, and a golf vacation for two at a Fairmont Resort – all provided by Derrick Young of Town and Country Ford.
