There is a lot of information below, but I believe important and valuable information.
So please read! :)
Traditions Golf Club is located at 2035 Williams Rd, Hebron, KY (click her to view on map).
If you haven't been in that area in awhile there is now an exit off 275 past the Hebron exit (if heading west), before (if heading east), that is named Graves Rd (Exit 8). This is the quickest and easiest way to get there as opposed to driving in/around the Industrial Complex or Subdivision.

Beat The Host
I'll be hitting two tee shots from the 17th hole. I will pick the best of the two shots and a stake will be put on the green (hopefully).
Players can pay $5 to try and hit their first (only once chance) shot. If their ball lands closer to the hole than my marker, I'll will pay them $20 from my own pocket, in the banquet room during the announcement of the winners.
I'm going to attempt to meet every team on the 9th and 18th holes and I will be an extra putter for the "first" putt.
If I make the putt, and it qualifies for the "Longest Putt", someone on the team can put their name on the sign.
I'll be hitting two drives before the round starts on both the 1st and 10th hole.
I'll choose the best drive on each hole. There will be a marker in the fairway (assuming I hit it) that marks the location of my drive. Your team has a choice of hitting from my shot, or hitting one of your shots.
It cost money to run outings and things like that.
All monies recieved from entry fee, raffles, mulligans, etc, will be tallied. All the expenses of the outing, like golf fees, food, drinks, will be deducted from the amount received from the previously mentioned items.
After everything is calculated, Xabula Charities will take 25% of profits to pay for additional expenses and the bigger project of 50 Rounds, 50 Days, 50 States. The remaining 75% will be donated to St Judes.
All outing donations will be donated to St Jude's under "Launch Golf Outing" and will hopefully be posted by April 29th (the day of round 1)
I TRULY HOPE YOU HAVE/HAD A GREAT TIME!
