After four years of a fundraising drought for the Girls’ Golf team due to large fundraisers for other sports, the team is holding their own on April 19 at 10:30, Pleasant Valley golf course.

“It’ll get people excited about City High golf,” All-State golfer Sarah Overton ‘16 said.

Head coach Jerry Hora began coaching at City High in 2002, and cited the initial need for the fundraiser as funds for an assistant golf coach. Since then, the money has gone toward equipment such as: new uniforms, a simulator, and range balls.

The tournament is four person best-shot, and anyone in the community, no matter their skill level, is encouraged to participate.

“I like that we’re getting to play with new team members that you choose for your group of four,” golfer Lexi Wichmann ‘15 said.

The cost of entering the tournament is $75 per player, and covers: lunch, 18 holes of golf, use of a cart, range balls, and a prize. Unique to this year’s tournament are two hole-in-one contests.

“[Players] have an opportunity to win a brand new car from Deery Brothers Ford, and an opportunity to win a brand new set of irons from Golf USA…We’ve organized enough prizes that we think everyone will receive one,” Hora said.

In the past, the team has been able to get around 100 golfers to spend part of their Sunday helping their school.

“We’re hoping to get another 100 players this year,” Hora said.

This fundraiser has become especially meaningful to the team’s finances since the recent budget cuts throughout the school district have taken effect.

“[Since] the budget is being tightened in the school districts,we have to supplement money ourselves to get the things that the kids need by having this golf outing,” Hora said. “It provides our money for us.”
