There is great news for supporters of the FUTURE MSAD 3 Golf Tournament planned for Saturday, Sept. 13, at Country View Golf Club on Route 7 in Brooks.
And that news is the field of 18 teams is already full, Barrie Fernald wrote.
Having a full field this early has not occurred before, she continued.
“We think it is due to our lower price; the car that Dutch’s in Belfast is offering for a hole-in-one, and most importantly, that we are dedicating the tournament” to the late Country View Golf Course co-owner Carl Brown, who died unexpectedly in May.
The FUTURE MSAD 3 board voted unanimously to dedicate the tournament to Brown, whom they considered “a great friend to our organization” and one who “helped us every step of the way with this event over the past four years,” Fernald wrote.
“By dedicating this tournament to his memory,” the group can say “thank you to Carl and his family,” she added.
All that remains now is completing the field of hole sponsors “at the reduced price of $50,” Fernald wrote. The sponsoring business or family name will be displayed at a hole on the course.
“This is FUTURE MSAD 3’s biggest annual fundraiser, and we are excited to host a full house of players.”
Proceeds benefit the campaign for athletic facilities for the new Mt. View school.
