With the 2016-17 campaign under way, the Adams County Christian School booster club is set to host its second annual fundraising golf tournament beginning Aug. 13.

The event will serve in a four-person scramble format, with check-in time is slated to begin at 7 a.m. at Duncan Park with players scheduled to tee off at 8 a.m.

“The first year was really good,” ACCS booster club president John L. Sullivan said. “We probably had 30 teams or more, so it was a great turnout. We raised a lot of money.”

Sullivan said all proceeds go to Rebel athletics and the school.

In addition to the scramble, the event will feature a long-drive competition, a closest-to-the-hole competition, a ball-drop, and plenty of Pro V1 golf balls to be won throughout the day.

The cost per team is $300, and $400 for corporate sponsorships. Breakfast and lunch will be provided at the course.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Sullivan said. “ACCS athletes and cheerleaders will be out there, and members of the ACCS golf team will be playing. It’s going to be a good deal.”

Sullivan said last year’s event was one of the biggest in Natchez and praised the entire Miss-Lou community for coming out in a sign of support.

“I played in every one of the Miss-Lou tournaments, and we were up there,” he said. “The people really turned out. What makes you proud is the community turned out to help the school they way did. Everybody in town played in this. It wasn’t just ACCS parents and alumni, and that’s what is great about this community. We are all in it together.”
