The Father Felix Ullrich, Knights of Columbus Council 5869 will continue the Love the Children Golf Tournament.
This tournament was started 10 years ago by Patty Jordan, Ladies Professional Golf Association professional. Proceeds were channeled to the West Pasco Pregnancy Center to help young girls in need of assistance during their pregnancies.
While the Knights of Columbus have volunteered to run tournament, Jordan will have a advisory role. She and other LPGA friends will play in this year's tournament, scheduled Oct. 28 at Seven Springs Golf and Country Club, 3535 Trophy Blvd. off State Road 54, New Port Richey.
The event will be a four-player scramble with a 1 p.m. shotgun start. There will be a men's division, a women's division and a mixed team, all gross and net.
The entry fee is $65 per player or $240 per team if paid with one check. The fee includes golf with cart, pictures, goody bag and a prize banquet.
Entry forms are being mailed to past participants; anyone else interested can call (727) 376-4855. All entries will be filled on a first come-first served basis. Deadline for entries is Oct. 17.
