The 23rd edition of Golf for Education is set for 9 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 30 at Toiyabe Golf Club in Washoe Valley. The 18-hole event provides businesses and golfers the chance to help WNC students pursue degrees and certifications, showcase their company, and the excitement and camaraderie of competing in a team format. The entry fee into the scramble tournament includes a light breakfast, tee prizes, hole-in-one and long drive prizes, on-course refreshments, raffle prizes, an opportunity to shoot the golf ball cannon, a barbecue, an awards ceremony, team photos, and more. The cost is $150 per player, $550 per four-player team or $850 for a business team sponsorship. Lunch for a non-golfing guest is $30. For businesses that sponsor a team, their company name will appear on the event banner and program, they’ll be recognized at the barbecue, they’ll receive two tee signs and a spot for a quartet of players in the tournament.
