Bill Adamack Memorial Golf Tournament making debut

The first-ever Bill Adamack Memorial Golf Tournament fundraiser will take place on Aug. 27 at the Fernie Golf and Country Club.

The Fernie Golf and Country Club will set the stage for the inaugural Bill Adamack Memorial Golf Tournament later this month.

Sponsored by Fernie Home Hardware Building Centre, the tournament is dedicated to a long-time employee of Home Hardware/Beaver Lumber in Fernie for 23 years. William “Bill” Adamack, who passed away unexpectedly in 2012 at the age of 61, was a long-standing member of The 3300 Club.

One hundred per cent of funds raised will go to local children’s sports programs and will be distributed by The 3300 Club.

The tournament will be played in a Texas Scramble format, with four-person teams and takes place on Aug. 27. The cost is $119 per person. Registration is at noon with shotgun starts beginning at 2 p.m. An awards dinner will follow at 7 p.m. Space is limited to 80 participants.

Price includes: 18 holes of golf, driving range balls, computerized scoring, a steak dinner and lots of great prizes to be won.

For those interested in attending the dinner only, the cost is $38 per person, including taxes.

To donate a prize to the upcoming golf fundraiser or to register, contact event coordinator Joseph Gatt at 250-423-4694.
