Area Golf Notes

By The Staff

 

Area golfers who want to play in the sixth annual Family Promise of Lancaster County golf tournament can still register to play in the 18-hole event.

The tournament was scheduled to be played Saturday, Aug. 17, but postponed to Saturday, Aug. 24 because of rain.

“We looked at the radar and it was rainy, windy and, for this time of year, cold,” said Mike Montgomery, the executive director of Family Promise of Lancaster County. “It would have been miserable.”

Montgomery said the tournament field has 12 teams registered.

“We can have as many as 22 teams, but the magic number is 18,” he said.

“For those who still want to register, they can sign up.”

Registration will be at noon, with a pizza lunch served from Little Caesars.

Play begins at 1:30 p.m., with golfers in by 5:30 when a cookout will be held along with the tournament awards.

The team of Milford Miller took top honors in the 2012 Family Promise of Lancaster County tournament at the Lancaster Golf Club.

Miller’s team, which included Bryan Gilliard, Jeremy Gilliard and Eddie Wray, shot a 56, which computed to a 48.6 with a 7.4 adjustment.
