The 23rd Annual Katie Fisher Golf Scramble is set for Aug. 24 at Locust Hills Golf Club, 5575 N. River Road, Springfield. Proceeds fund college scholarships for Madison-Plains High School FFA students.
The 18-hole four-person scramble features a shotgun start and a tee time of 8 a.m. The cost to enter is $220 per team. All entries are due by Aug. 17.
Prizes will go to the top team and the worst team. Various holes will offer hole-in-one contests. The entry fee includes a continental breakfast and lunch.
Hole sponsorships are $100. Hole-in-one sponsorships are $150.
The golf scramble is named in honor of Katie Fisher, a Madison-Plains student who was diagnosed with Burkitt’s lymphoma in 1995. She lost her battle with the disease that same year. To keep her memory alive, Fisher’s family created a scholarship to help further educational opportunities for Madison-Plains FFA students. The scramble and outside donations help to keep the scholarship going.
