Golfers to hold benefit for wrestling youth

WARRENSBURG - In several weeks, dozens of golfers will be vying for the lowest score as they raise money for local athletes as they compete in the fifth annual Warrensburg Wrestling Club Golf Tournament.

To be held July 11 at Cronin's Golf Resort, the format is a four-person scramble, and more than $1,000 is offered in cash and prizes, organizer Scott McKenna said Monday.

With tee-off times starting at 8 a.m., registration begins at 7 a.m. Food and beverages will be served throughout the day, and a steak roast follows the tournament, accompanied by music and dancing into the evening.

The cost for Cronin's Golf Club members is $80, and the cost for non-members is $50. Reservations with payment are due before July 1. For details and reservations, contact Scott McKenna at 523-4565 or Mark Trapasso at 504-4028.

Net proceeds go towards supporting the Warrensburg Wrestling Club activities.

The Club has bought wrestling mats and other related equipment for the schools, plus it purchases uniforms for wrestlers on a limited budget. Also, the club shoulders expenses for travel to meets and tournaments, on behalf of wrestlers from 4 years old through high-school age.
