The tournament format features four-person teams at a cost of $60 per player, which includes all green fees, cart fees and dinner. Golfers will also enjoy opportunities to win lots of prizes. Contests include longest drive and closest to the pin as well as a chance to win a hole-in-one prize of $10,000 on a designated hole.

“This is going to be a great day of golf, fun, food and prizes, all of which benefits PHS,” said Suzanne Smith, PHS board member and tournament chair. “Every year we get a great turnout and wonderful support. We invite all animal-loving golfers to join us! It’s also a terrific opportunity for young golfers and their families to play together for a great cause. ”
PHS provides services to 1,200 animals in 11 towns within St. Lawrence County, as well as educational programs for the community and local schools, a Pets for Veterans program, and a successful low-cost spay/neuter program. All monies raised from the tournament support PHS and its programs.
