Unpack your golf clubs and get ready to place your golf ball on the tee at Blackberry Trail this May.
Florence Main Street is hosting our 2nd Annual Golf Tournament as our annual fundraiser. We choose Blackberry Trail because of it’s gorgeous 6,851 yards of rolling fairways and green side bunkers featuring accommodations like practice bunkers, chipping green, putting green, and driving green. We are recruiting teams of 4 to compete against one another for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners with additional competitions in longest drive, closest to the pin, and putting.
Schedule of Tournament
11:00 Lunch provided

Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support restoration and revitalization efforts in historic downtown Florence. Examples of uses of funds are retail and special events to increase awareness of the downtown community, building facade improvements, downtown beautification, banners, gifts of public art, recruitment of new business.
Fill out the Golf Tournament flyer 2014 and send back to Florence Main Street. We look forward to spending the day with you at Blackberry Trail.
