On Tuesday, May 22, South Coast golfers have a unique opportunity to play a round of golf and clean up New Bedford Harbor at the same time.
That is because the Buzzards Bay Coalition and the Bay Club at Mattapoisett are partnering to host a Golf Tournament specifically designed to fund nitrogen pollution cleanup in New Bedford Harbor. Registration is open now until May 14, 2012 at www.savebuzzardsbay.org/golf.
At the conclusion of play, State Senator Mark Montigny will preside over tournament prize awards and a live and silent auction at the Bay Club’s Golf House Restaurant. The auction will feature one-of-a-kind experiences like a guided salmon-fishing adventure in Alaska with Angling Unlimited, a weeklong luxury resort stay in St. Lucia, a week at a 15th-century cottage in Sussex England, a yacht cruise and clambake on Cuttyhunk Island, and an array of special-access Buzzards Bay experiences in addition to golf foursomes, custom-fitted Titleist Metal Wood golf clubs, art, jewelry, and collectibles.
A raffle will give away Red Sox tickets and a Caribbean getaway to Antigua. Golfers will also win prizes for lowest score, longest drive, and closet to the pin.
Interested golfers can register online, individually or as a foursome, at www.savebuzzardsbay.org/golf. Even if you don’t golf you can still participate in this great event by registering for the reception and auction that follow.
