TRINITY —The 6th Annual Veteran's "Golf War" will get underway at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, at Westwood Shores Country Club in Trinity. The event is open to all veterans of all ages with U.S. military or National Guard service – whether or not the service was in a war on foreign soil. This year's event is also open to friends of veterans 21 years old or older and military service is not required. Entry forms are available on the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6899 website at www.vfwpost6899.org, by calling 594-9467 or 594-0645 or e-mailing to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com The cost is $60 per player and includes entry fee, cart fee, ball cap and a BBQ luncheon following the tournament. Proceeds this year benefit the V.F.W. operating fund. The format is a four-person scramble and players can sign up as a team or as individuals who will be assigned to a team. Cash prizes will be awarded for first, second, third and a mystery place team, longest drives, closest-to-the-pin on Par 3's and for the optional Putting Contest and Chipping Contest winners. Again this year a new golf cart is offered as a hole-in-one prize on the specified hole. Hole sponsorships are also available to area businesses or individuals for just $60 per hole and includes a sponsor sign on one of the tee boxes.
