Golf for a Great Cause!!
Fountain Head Country Club is proudly hosting the 21st annual Children’s Village Golf Tournament on Friday June 12th! Golfers will come out to play on our classically designed Donald Ross Golf course with all proceeds benefitting the Children’s Village Life Safety Educational Program here in Hagerstown, Maryland.
Not only will players get to experience 18 holes of golf (including cart) on our exquisite course, but also special events, continental breakfast, lunch on our patio, and a players gift. Some of the special events include awards for the best Caddy Shack inspired outfit and “most trees hit”, a longest drive contest, hole in one and closest to the pin challenges! There will also be a kiddie pool chipping contest and a golden golf ball scavenger hunt! Players can even get their cars washed by St. James students while they play!
Oh, and I can’t for get to mention what might be the most interesting event of the day: The Helicopter Golf Ball Drop before the tournament begins!!! 600 golf balls are going to fall 150 feet from a helicopter right here on the course, what a sight!! The three numbers closest to the pin will win $50, $100 or $500! The balls are $5 each and the funds raised will go to providing a free safety education to every second grade student in Washington County.
We couldn’t be more thrilled to host this event and help raise money/awareness for such an important piece of our community. I personally got the chance to visit the Children’s Village and see just what they had to offer! The facilities were amazing with interactive classrooms both indoor and outdoor to provide children with information, skills and confidence to make informed safety decisions. The Children’s Village of Washington County’s campus is complete with and indoor bike route, outdoor mini-town with child sized cars for the kids to drive around in while following traffic rules, and an actual burned house from a fire that occurred in Hagerstown for the kids to tour! Children’s village is both fun and informative for kids of all ages!!
