In addition to the fun round of golf, there will be multiple on-course games, great raffle prizes plus the $10 Million Shootout and a 3-putt Putting Contest with a $30,000 prize! You can watch Mark Hamer sink his putt at last year’s tournament to win $30,000 at

Every golfer receives an entry ticket with Super Card purchasers receiving additional entries.

Everyone is entered in the 3-putt putting contest for the $30,000 prize.  During tournament play each golfer gets a chance to make a 10-foot putt.  All golfers making the 10-foot putt then try to make a 30-ft putt, those making the 30-ft. putt get their chance to make the final 50-ft and win $30,000! It’s a winner take all contest, so if multiple golfers sink the 50-footer they will cut cards from an un-opened deck of cards with the high card winning the full $30,000.
