Glen Mar Golf Classic Benefit for Grassroots Rescheduled for June 10

Timbers of Troy is setting for tournament and awards luncheon

Note: due to saturated course conditions after days of rain, the Glen Mar Golf Classic has been rescheduled to June 10.

Registration is open for the 8th Annual Glen Mar Golf Classic, set for Monday, May 13, at the Timbers of Troy Golf Course in Elkridge. The event, hosted by Glen Mar United Methodist Church, will benefit Grassroots, Howard County’s 24-hour crisis intervention center which shelters individuals and families who are homeless.

The tournament includes a continental breakfast, silent auction, and luncheon. In addition to trophies for the three foursomes having the lowest scores, prizes will be awarded to the Winning Senior Team and Winning Women’s Team and for ‘longest drive’ and ‘closest to the pin’ for men and women. There will also be the opportunity to win prizes for a hole-in-one, a putting contest, and a “circle-of-cash”. The format is “Captain’s Choice” (scramble); senior’s and women’s tee boxes will be permitted. Registration and breakfast will begin at 7:30 a.m. followed by a shotgun start at 8:30. The tournament fee is $135 per player, or $540 per foursome. Non-golfers may attend at $25 per person to join the luncheon and participate in the silent auction.

A buffet lunch, silent auction, and awards program will begin at 1:30 p.m.

Sponsorships are available from $2,500 and up for the Benefactor level to $250 for hole sponsorship. All proceeds cleared from tournament sponsorships, fees, and the silent auction will support operations at Grassroots, which aids local families in crises.

Golfers can register online at www.glenmargolfclassic.com.
