GENESEE COUNTY — King Par LLC of Flushing will hold the first King Par Classic for the benefit of Whaley Children’s Center, June 27 at Warwick Hills Country Club, in Grand Blanc.
This exceptional golf venue was the site of the PGA Tour Buick Open for 50 years. Now many in the community will experience this pristine course while benefiting the worthy cause of Whaley Children’s Center.
These benefactors continue to accept donations and corporate sponsorships, with levels ranging from $2,500 to $5,000 for major sponsorships and $300 for hole sponsorships.
Major sponsors currently include: Patsy Lou Williamson, Colston Financial, McLaren Regional Medical Center and King Par LLC.
The event will offer many exciting contests and awards; Men’s and Women’s Longest-Drive, Closest-tothe Pin, and Straightest-Drive will all receive great prizes.
A $1 million pay out could await the lucky golfer who gets an ace in the Million Dollar Hole-in-One Contest sponsored by Orlimar. The winning scramble team will be awarded prizes and have their names etched on a permanent trophy displayed for all to see at the King Par Superstore in Flushing.
The Big-Barrel-Shootout, Putting- Contest, raffles and silent auction round out the fun.
Registration is now closed due to an outstanding response from the community. The field is full, but there are still several sponsorship opportunities available.
The entry fee is $300 per player which includes a terrific gift package, 18-hole scramble with cart, contests & prizes, buffet lunch, dinner and reception, as well as top team awards.
Guests who are not golfing can still join the reception, dinner, and auction for $60.
