LANESBOROUGH, MA – The Hoffmann Bird Club (HBC) of Western Massachusetts announces its Sixth Annual “Hoffmann Hackers Golf Classic” which could otherwise be known as “The Longest Bird.”
The event will take place at the Donnybrook Country Club, 775 Williamstown Road, Lanesborough, MA 01237, on Friday, June 22, 2018, starting with a “shotgun start” at 4:00 PM. The public is welcome to participate. The 9-hole golf tournament is a fundraiser for Berkshire County’s premier Ornithological Society. There will be a rain date of June 29th.
The entry fee for the event will be $40.00 per head, which includes placement on a team, 9 holes of golf, with carts included, and an all-you-can-eat barbeque/cook-out following the event. The format will be a “Captain and Crew” or “Best Ball”, but comes with a twist; Each team of four golfers is also responsible to note as many different bird species as possible during the tournament. The number of birds identified may be deducted from that team’s final golf score! Each team will be encouraged to have at least one good “Birder” and one good “Golfer”. There will also be prizes for “Closest to the Pin” and “Longest Drive”. Special prizes will also be awarded for “birdies” and “eagles.”
Non-Golfers are encouraged and welcome to come as spectators, and may pay a fee of $11.00 to participate in the barbecue, which will consist of hamburgers or cheeseburgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, pickles, chips, and non-carbonated soft drinks. A raffle and other fundraising activities will follow the event.
To sign up, you may request an application by emailing; email@example.com , calling 413-499-7888, or picking one up in person at the Donnybrook Country Club. There will be a limit of 18 teams of four.
