Golf outings on par for summer


Golfers will tell you anytime is a good time to play, no matter how hot or humid it may get. Add in a good cause, and you’ve got a hole-in-one.

Here’s a few fundraisers we know of going on this summer in Delaware County. If we’ve missed one, we hope you’ll give us a mulligan — and information on the event we can get into a future edition of The Gazette.

• The 2019 Little Brown Jug Junior Golf Classic tournament is scheduled for July 6 at the city of Delaware’s Hidden Valley Golf Course. The golf classic is open to all youth ages 7-17, and there is a small entry fee.

Registration forms are available at the Hidden Valley Golf Course clubhouse (580 W. William St.), on the Hidden Valley website, and on the Delaware County Kiwanis Club website,

Ed Schlote, of the local Kiwanis Club, said last year the group’s mission is to change the world by “serving children, one child and one community at a time.” He added that the golf classic is one of several projects the club sponsors that’s “focused on youth, strengthening families, and serving the community.”

“We also invite Delaware County businesses and residents to plan on ways to support the tournament through monetary or prize donations,” Schlote continued. “Any and all proceeds from Kiwanis events are used to support Kiwanis projects.”

In 2017, 60 young people participated in the Little Brown Jug Junior Golf Classic, which required the event to be divided into two flights. The event wouldn’t be possible, he added, without the support of the City of Delaware, which works with the club to give it a location to host the tournament.

For more information about the tournament, contact Edward Schlote at [email protected].

• You may have seen the sign as you drive by the Humane Society of Delaware County. Putts Fore Paws registration is already sold out. The event is July 15 at the Medallion Club in Westerville. Celebrity golfers include former Ohio State football players, and local television and radio personalities.

• The 11th annual Sunbury/Big Walnut Area Chamber of Commerce Golf Outing is 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 2 at Royal American Golf Links. There will be a shotgun start following the chamber’s quarterly breakfast. For more information, call 740-965-2860 or visit the chamber’s website. Budzak | The Gazette
