Balls in the Ruff Golf Tournament
TRUCKEE, Calif. – The Humane Society of Truckee Tahoe will host its first Balls in the Ruff Golf Tournament, a unique tournament set to benefit the homeless pets in and around our community.
The scramble-style tournament, to be held at noon on Friday, Sept. 16 at the Tahoe Donner Golf Course, will include fun contests throughout the event. Entry costs $150, including 18 holes of golf with cart, a golfer goody bag and an awards dinner.
“Pet-themed contests throughout the course will make this the most fun you have playing golf this year,” said Stephanie Nisler, executive director of the Humane Society.
The golf tournament is presented by the Law Offices of Molsby & Bordner, LLP. A hole-in-one hole, sponsored by the Elder Group Tahoe Real Estate, has a $10,000 prize for a hole-in-one, while another hole, sponsored by Tanamera Construction, has a Hawaiian trip for two prize for a hole-in-one.
A barbecue dinner, sponsored by Aegis Insurance Markets, will be held at the Tahoe Donner Lodge after play. Each player will walk away with a golfer goody bag sponsored by Metropolitan Electrical Construction.
There will also be a raffle and other fun contest holes on the course, including a Wheel of “Furtune” and the Lab Lob.
