Golfers beware any cheating at this tournament might earn you some time in the slammer.
The third annual Holman Correctional Facility Employee Support Fund Golf Tournament will tee off at 9 a.m. on June 19 at the Atmore Country Club.
The Alabama Department of Corrections (ADOC) Employee Support Fund began after Hurricane Ivan swept through the state.
Its purpose is to benefit employees of the ADOC if they suffer a loss that might not be covered by insurance ,such as damage to a home during a hurricane.
Captain David Craft of the Holman Correctional Facility said the tournament has grown some, and has also done its purpose by helping out families in the last three years.
The tournament for the Holman ADOC Employee Support Fund will be a four-person scramble and the individual registration fee is $60.
The fee includes 18 holes of golf, a cart, practice greens, refreshments and tournament prizes.
As of now, the early registration period ended on June 5, but teams are still allowed to sign up for the tournament.
Craft said the tournament is seeing about the same participation that it saw last year with a few extra teams expected to sign up.
Several sponsors have signed onto the tournament and have sponsored holes or teams.
Contests such as longest drive and closest to the pin will also be held with prizes to be awarded.
