The Rotary Club of Goodyear PebbleCreek has announced plans for its third annual Charity Golf Tournament on Feb. 16, at the PebbleCreek Tuscany Falls Golf Club.

“Our Goodyear PebbleCreek Rotary Club of 35 members is excited about this fundraising opportunity to support local community charities and needs,” said Charlie Miller, club president.

The 18-hole scramble format tournament will begin with an 8 a.m. shotgun start. The $360 foursome fee ($100 individual fee) includes golf, cart, lunch, prizes, and raffle prizes. The PebbleCreek Tuscany Falls Golf Club is located at 16222 Clubhouse Drive in Goodyear.

The entry deadline is Feb. 7. Checks should be made payable to the Goodyear PebbleCreek Rotary Club Foundation.

Sponsorship packages are also available for local businesses interested in supporting the Rotary Club’s charitable efforts.

Entry forms are available at the PebbleCreek Golf Club pro shops and from Rotary Club members or by contacting Rotarians listed below.

Another fun feature of the tournament is the golf ball drop, featuring numbered golf balls dropped from a Goodyear Fire Department ladder truck. The ball landing in or closest to the hole will win $3,000. Ball drop tickets are $20 and are available from Rotary Club members. You need not be present at the tournament to win. The proceeds from this part of the tournament also fund student scholarships and local charitable projects.

“Our club is dedicated to ‘service above self’ and we partner with 1.2 million other Rotarians around the world committed to truth, fairness, goodwill, friendship, and enriched communities,” said Miller.

The club meets every Wednesday from 7 to 8 a.m. in the Chianti Room of the PebbleCreek Tuscany Falls Clubhouse and is a group of neighbors, community leaders and local citizens uniting for the common good. Visitors are always welcome.
