Craig Wood Golf Course holding tournament

LAKE PLACID — It’s a Lake Placid tradition each fall on the village’s golf courses. Every year on a rotating basis the bar and restaurant service community in the region tees it up to benefit the needy animals of the Tri-Lakes Humane Society.

A year ago this event generated $7,000. The two-person scramble at picturesque Craig Wood Golf Course on Route 73 hopes to produce even better results on Sept. 10. The combined handicap of each team cannot be lower than 20.

The tournament, contested in men’s, women’s and mixed divisions, is presented by beverage distributor High Peaks Distributing in Saranac Lake and online golf retailer rockbottomgolf.com, which has donated many prizes for this event.

The cost is $75 per player, which includes greens fee, cart, skins game, barbecue and awards party in the newly renovated Craig Wood clubhouse and restaurant high above the ninth green.

Preregistration with payment can be made by calling 523-1925. Registration on tournament day is $80 per person and begins at 10 a.m. at the golf course. A shotgun start is slated for 11 a.m.
