Teeing off for the symphony

Published 2:38 pm Thursday, March 25, 2010

The Greystone Symphony Committee wants area golfers to bring out their clubs for a good cause.

The committee plans to host a golf tournament on the Founders Course Friday, April 2. The course was once home to the Bruno’s Golf Memorial Classic. The format for this tournament will be a two–person Texas scramble with a shotgun start at 1 p.m.

A silent auction before the tee–off will include items such as a football signed by Auburn coach Gene Chizik, plus a “Day with Paul Finebaum” on his sportstalk radio show.

There will also be “Beat the Pro” and “Hit the Green” contests. Lunch is provided as part of the $100 per person entry fee. Half of that fee will go to benefit the effort to bring the Alabama Symphony Orchestra out to the Greystone community for a free June 19 concert.

To register for the tournament, call the golf shop at Greystone at 986-5126.
