The 18th Annual Sun River Electric (SREC) Golf Tournament will take place at Harvest Hills Golf Course in Fairfield this Saturday, July 29.
This year, the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Town of Fairfield in support of the new Chet Leach and Merrill Olsen Memorial Tennis Courts currently under construction. Event proceeds are the result of businesses that sponsor holes during the tournament.
Over the years, more than $60,000 has been raised to support area needs. In the past, donations have been used for tables and chairs at the Fairfield Community Hall, the Snack Shack at the Ernie Thorn Memorial Pool in Fairfield, street lights along Central Avenue and for a kitchen remodel at Harvest Hills Golf Course.
This years SREC Golf Tournament will get underway at 10:00 a.m. in a four-person scramble. Usually, about 80 golfers attend.
Golfers will be served lunch on the course and a barbecue dinner during the awards ceremony.
