SPRINGVILLE—Back for its 15th year, the Boys and Girls Club of Springville’s Horschel Brothers Golf Classic will feature a few new upgrades.
“New and improved,” said Board President Jim Howe. Howe explained the Golf Classic Committee, headed by Eric Lawton and Ashley Kerr, has worked through the winter months to ensure this year’s event will be better than ever.
Dixon Golf will be in attendance with their environmentally friendly golf balls, during the June 26 tournament. Dixon Golf is the world’s only manufacturer of a high performance, eco-friendly family of golf balls, and will be issuing the Dixon Challenge, a highlight of this year’s event.
As each group of golfers arrives at the Dixon Challenge Tee, a representative will provide them with a free Dixon Earth golf ball and challenge them to try their golf ball against the eco-friendly Dixon Earth ball. Just for participating, golfers will receive more than $150 worth of products and certificates from Dixon and their partners, as well as be entered into a drawing to win a free golf simulator. Cost to play the Challenge is $10. Each golfer who accepts the challenge will be awarded one extra shot. Should either shot land on the green, they will receive one sleeve of Dixon Earth golf balls.
The Boys and Girls Club has partnered up with Anderson’s Food Truck to be in the parking lot for lunch. Anderson’s will be serving their roast beef sandwich for all tournament golfers.
During the cocktail and appetizer hour outside on the deck, golfers and their guests will be entertained by JT & Jon Law, singing some old favorites and newer ones, too. Singing along is encouraged.
Chef Kirk Van Wagner, former chef and owner of Curley’s in Lackawanna, will prepare dinner for golfers and their guests.
The tournament will feature all the normal activities and contests: beverages on the course, 50/50 and auctions. Skills contest consisting of the Longest Drive Contest for both men and women, Closest to the Pin Contest for both men and women, Hole-in-One contest at three holes where golfers can win prizes and the Hole-in-One contest to win a new car.
