Find a babysitter this Thursday afternoon -- there's a golf tournament to be won.
Cantiague Park will host a twilight golf tournament for mixed couples on Thursday, August 25, a nine-hole event that is open to all Nassau County residents. Couples will be paired up with other mixed duos to compete as four-person scramble teams, and individuals who wish to participate will be assigned a partner by the tournament committee. All players must have a valid county Leisure Pass.
The tourney will begin with a 4 p.m. shotgun start. A barbecue and awards ceremony will follow. Entry fee is $50 per person to walk or $60 to ride (carts are limited and will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis).
To register, download the tournament brochure from the Nassau County website and submit the completed entry form with Leisure Pass and proof of residency. For more information, call (516) 571-7061.
