Challenging 27-Hole Tournament Offers Prizes, Gift Bags, Trophies, Meals – to benefit Backstoppers
ARNOLD, MO/May 30, 2017 (STL.News) Mark your calendars for June 10, 2017, when Pomme Creek Golf Course will host its 2nd Annual 27-hole golf tournament called The Pomme Cup.
There’s no age limit for entry to the tournament that will begin at 8 a.m., offering a full day of competitive play with gift bags, prizes, trophies, lunch and an afternoon meal. A major portion of the proceeds will be donated to Backstoppers.
“The Pomme Cup quickly became a popular tournament that challenges every golfer,” said Gary Plunk, Arnold 4th Ward City Councilman. “This year we’re also hosting a ‘mini-tournament’ at the Pomme Cup with four teams of eight first responders so they can enjoy the play,” he said. Each nine holes of the tournament will be played differently:
· The 1st nine is two-person scramble
· 2nd nine is alternating shots
· 3rd nine play will be a surprise revealed at the tourney
Entry fees of $40 per person, non-members (and $30 for current Pomme Creek members), will cover 27 holes of golf, a cart, lunch, late afternoon meal, gift bag, plus chances to win prizes and trophies.
Ten dollars of every $40 entry fee will be donated to Backstoppers, the nonprofit group that provides financial assistance to spouses and dependent children of police officers, firefighters, volunteer firefighters, publicly-funded paramedics and EMTs who have been killed or suffered catastrophic injury in the line of duty.
Pomme Creek Pro Shop Manager Betty Boyer said, “Flights at the Pomme Cup will depend on the total number of players. There will be pay out for closest to the hole and an available skins game.
“Flight winners each will receive gift cards and a trophy. We’ll have a 45 to 60 minute rest break between the first 18 and the last nine holes.”
“Last year’s Pomme Cup tourney was a quick sellout,” Boyer added. “We advise players to register early because we expect this tournament to fill up fast,” she said.
Smokey Bones is a Pomme Cup co-sponsor. Additional organizations are invited to become co-sponsors or “hole sponsors.”
