St. Bernard Prep in conjunction with Tournament Sponsor Cullman Dodge is preparing for one of the largest golf tournaments in the 28 year history of the school’s tournaments. Tournament Director, Fr. Jacob Amos, OSB said he is excited about hosting this tournament to coordinate with the Prep School’s annual Alumni Reunion.
On Thursday, June 21 all golfers who are pre-registered are invited to attend a golf reception at Ave Maria Grotto, where golfers can buy mulligans and bid on a monk to golf with their team. Anyone wishing to enter the tournament may register at the reception or at Cullman Municipal Golf Course early Friday morning.
“We have a shotgun start scheduled for 8 a.m.,” Fr. Jacob said. This year’s tournament is being sponsored in part by Cullman Dodge who will sponsor a ‘hole in one’ contest on the 10th hole of the course. Grinning Fr. Jacob said, “Of course the tenth hole is a tough par 3 at 170 yards, but anyone nailing the hole will win a 2012 Jeep Wrangler.”
After the tournament there will 50/50 Cash Hole in One where golfers can try for a closest to the pin. The Putting Contest is always an exciting event. There are a number of other challenge holes where golfers will win other prizes.
Lunch and awards will follow after tournament play.
