Colorado State University Extension invites all golfers to the sixth annual Tri River Area 4-H Golf Tournament Sept. 16 at Devil's Thumb Golf Course in Delta. Registration opens at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start at 10 a.m. Cost is $70 a golfer (four-man teams for $250) or $50 for youth. Registration includes 18 holes, golf cart, contests/prizes and lunch. Sponsors are also appreciated and will receive additional benefits and publicity.
The golf tournament helps provide resources supporting local 4-H programs, enabling our youth to learn real-world skills and preparing them for the challenges of today and careers of tomorrow. All proceeds raised from the tournament will provide additional youth programming within the Mesa, Delta, Montrose and Ouray county 4-H programs. For more information about the golf tournament and how you can get involved, visit our website at http://tra.extension.colostate.edu/topic-areas/4-h/ or contact the Montrose Extension Office at 970-249-3935. Pre-registration is recommended.
