The American Cancer Society will hold its inaugural Hill Country Golf Classic at Hidden Falls Golf Course in Meadowlakes Saturday, Oct. 28.

“Not only will you have fun and enjoy the health benefits of an exciting round of golf, but you'll also support the American Cancer Society's (ACS) efforts to save lives by helping people stay and get well,” said Jayne Palmer of the ACS South Region that includes all of Burnet County.

Tournament check-in and purchase of mulligans will begin at 10 a.m. before the shot-gun start at 11 a.m.

Cost for the four-man scramble is $75 per person. Mulligans are five for $20. Tribute roses will be available in memory of a loved one who lost the battle against cancer or in tribute to a survivor. The bouquet created will be the centerpiece at a taco meal served to golfers after the tournament.

A hole-in-one on hole 6 will win a choice of vacations for four to San Francisco and Sonoma, Palm Springs golfing, a New York City Broadway experience or to Miami Turnberry Isles.

“We always welcome sponsors whose generous support and participation helps us to fulfill our mission at the American Cancer Society to save lives and create more birthdays by helping people stay well, get well, find cures and fight back,” said Palmer.

For nearly a century, the American Cancer Society has fought for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community.

“By taking what we’ve learned through research and turning it into what we do, we have contributed to a 25 percent decrease in the overall cancer death rate between the early 1990s and 2017,” said Palmer. “Society researchers estimate that 1.5 million cancer deaths have been averted due to effective early detection, cancer treatment, and cancer prevention efforts. What better reason is there to “tee” it up?
