18TH Annual Huron Chamber Outing Challenges Area Golfers
HURON -- A great fall day of golf, the 18th annual Don Billman Memorial Golf Outing, is planned on Wednesday, Sept. 10 at Sawmill Creek Golf Club. Sponsored by the Huron Chamber of Commerce, the scramble is a tribute to Billman, who founded the event in the early 1980’s. He served as treasurer of the group for nearly two decades, prior to his death in 1996.
There will be a shot-gun start at 1 p.m. Greens fees are $85. Teams registering by Friday, Sept. 5, will receive discount of $10 per player or $40 per team. Players from around the area are invited and urged to sign up early as this is always a very popular outing.
The outing is one of the Chamber’s major fundraisers and a popular event each year for Chamber members, as well as area golfers looking for a fun-filled day with a great dinner and lots of prizes. Proceeds are used to provide scholarships to Huron High School graduates.
A brand new Chevrolet Cruze, compliments of Foster Chevrolet-Cadillac, is the grand prize awaiting the lucky golfer who can sink a hole-in-one on Hole #7.
Sawmill is a premium course, with challenges for novices and veteran golfers, alike. Perks for the players include: longest drive and other proximity hole prizes, door prizes, mulligans and skins, lunch prior to play and a victory steak dinner.
Players will have the opportunity to test their skills with an award-winning young golfer in the “Beat The Kid” contest.
There’s always a lot of action at the outing, but it hit a peak several years ago, when Huron realtor Chris Wechter sunk his ball in the 15th hole during play at Thunderbird Hills with one swing and won a new car.
