With the arrival of spring and warmer weather, we all look forward to spending time outdoors. Golfers can enjoy a day on the greens, a buffet dinner and some competition if they register this week for the St. John Lutheran Church golf outing. Scheduled for April 28, it will take place at the Cedar Ridge Golf Course on the outskirts of Gettysburg, Pa.
There will be a "shotgun start," which means every team entered will tee off at 8 a.m. The Calloway Handicapping System will be used to make the event equitable in terms of scoring.
The cost is $45. The charge includes greens fees, carts, prizes, an all-you-can-eat buffet, roast beef dinner and beverages. It also includes a $5 donation to the church's building fund. Golfers may register as a team or an individual for placement on a team.
You can register by calling the church office at 859-0020.
