Spring is in full swing: the warmer days are here, the birds have returned north, and the grass on the fairway is greener than ever. For golfers, it is time to fetch the clubs from the basement, clean the heads off their drivers, and play in the Hollis Brookline Booster Club Annual Golf Outing at the Overlook Country Club on Friday, May 16.

The Cavalier Golf Booster Club puts on this tournament each year in order to raise money to support the golf team. The day will begin with tee off at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start. The format is scrambled and golfers will battle the fairways and the greens. A grilled lunch will be provided at noon before the back nine are played.

Many prizes, awards, and raffles are available for participants. Individual prizes and awards will be given out to the golfer with the longest drive, an award for the straightest drive, and one for closest to the pin. In recent years, the most popular award given out has been the Rodney Dangerfield trophy given to the golfer who is the best dressed. Lastly, anyone with a hole in one wins the grand prize of $25,000 cash.

Many people have signed up to play but there are still spots available. The cost for players is $125.00 per person, $100.00 for a Hollis Brookline student or alumni, and $500.00 for a team of four. For further information or to sign up, go to http://cavsgolf.com/
