Some great prizes await you in this year’s Hole in One Contest.
The 43rd annual Santa Fund Hole-in-One Contest gives participants a chance to win golf equipment and other prizes while supporting the Gazette Santa Fund.
Besides having a chance to win prices, participants will also help less fortunate people have a good holiday season.
The contest will be Oct. 10, 11 and 12 from 4 to 8 p.m. and Oct. 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Garrison Golf Center on Hilldale Avenue. All proceeds go to the Santa Fund, which distributes money through the Salvation Army and Haverhill Community Action.
Last year, the event raised $4,110 despite poor weather. Rain eliminated one day of the 2011 contest, but it still generated the same amount of money as it did the year before.
Local businesses donate gift certificates and other items as prizes for the tournament. To participate, golfers will pay $8 for a bucket of balls and drive them as close as they can to the hole, which is 150 yards away.
