Fund Day Slated for September 9 at Riverside Golf Club

Central Nebraska's Riverside Golf Club will host the 2024 edition of Fund Day this season. Scheduled for Monday, September 9, Fund Day is NWAGA's primary fundraiser in support of girl's golf in Nebraska. Teams of four may enter and compete in a Shamble competition where all team members tee off and the best drive is selected. From there, all golfers play their own ball into the hole from the selected drive (must use at least two drives from each player). For scoring purposes, the two best net scores on each hole will be counted. The event includes 18-holes of golf, cart, use of the practice range, flag prizes, merchandise prizes and post round heavy appetizers. Registration begins August 1 with a deadline of  September 2. Link above to the appropriate tab for complete details.
