The Sallisaw Educational Foundation's annual 4-Man Golf Scramble will be held Saturday at the Shadow Creek Golf Club in Sallisaw.
Eric Karr, foundation president, said the golf tournament will continue even in the rain. Play is only called off or delayed in case of storms and lightning. Heavy rain Friday may have dampened the course, but Saturday’s forecast is only for possible scattered showers.
The tournament is the primary fundraiser for the foundation, which provides grants for Sallisaw teachers to enrich the learning experience of their students. The foundation has awarded more than $100,000 in grants to teachers in kindergarten through high school since the foundation’s organization 26 years ago.
Karr said the foundation has awarded grants for programs and equipment the school usually cannot finance. In the past the foundation has purchased a new telescope for astronomy classes and a metronome for the marching band.
Tournament registration will be at 8 a.m. Saturday, when donuts will be served, and tee-off time is at 8:30 a.m. Lunch will be served at about 12:15 p.m., Karr said.
The entry fee is $200 per team. First place will win $500, second place will win $300, and third place will win $200. Additional prizes will be awarded for the longest drive and the closest to the pin. Anyone who makes a hole in one on the third hole will win a car from Blue Ribbon Auto Group.
