Kiwanis Club of North Gwinnett hosts golf tourney at Lanier Islands

By Pamela A. Keene
 
To raise money for area high school scholarships, the Kiwanis Club of North Gwinnett is hosting its annual Fall Golf Classic at Lanier Islands’ Legacy Golf Course on Tuesday, Sept. 25.
 
“This is one of our major fund-raising events each year,” said Cal Andrews, this year’s classic chair. “We award college scholarships to high school graduates from five local Gwinnett County high schools – Mountain View, Mill Creek, North Gwinnett, Buford and Lanier. Each school houses local Key Club chapters to help students learn the value of serving their community and gives them a chance to hone their leadership skills.” 
 
Registration for the event is $560 per foursome until September 19; after that date, registration, if available, is $600 per foursome. Individual registration is $150 per player. It includes range balls, green fees, cart, lunch, soft drinks, on-course contest entries and a golfer’s gift.
 
Play is four-man scramble format. The shotgun start is 9:30 a.m. The practice range and registration open at 8 a.m.
 
Prizes will be given for the two low-gross teams and the two low-net teams, as well as individual prizes for closest to the pins and longest drives. The event concludes with an awards banquet, raffle and silent auction. Sponsorships are still available by contacting Andrews at 678 472-7166.
 
The club was originally chartered in 1939 as the Kiwanis Club of Buford. Today is has nearly 50 members, small business owners who live around and on Lake Lanier. The club meets every Tuesday at the Buford Community Center at noon for lunch and a speaker. Interested potential members are encouraged to come to a meeting.
