Golfing for a cause in Hay River

210

The Hay River Hospital foundation held its annual golf tournament fundraiser on July 20. The tournament featured 10 teams of four, each representing a local company that sponsored them. The teams played a Texas style scramble 18-hole round to determine the winner, meaning the best ball from each team was played. The amount of money raised was not available by press time.
