17th Annual “Summer Scramble,” At Wellsville Country Club August 27th


The Friends of Allegany Arc Foundation will be holding their 17th Annual Summer Scramble at the Wellsville Country Club on Friday, August 27, 2021. The tournament will be a four-person scramble format (men’s, women’s and mixed teams) with a 1:30 pm shotgun start.

“The best thing about a scramble format is that it is a quicker paced tournament and allows for golfers at every level to participate,” said Myriah Perry, Event Chairperson. Ms. Perry continued, “The tournament is fulling up, but we are still looking for a few more teams and accepting donations from local businesses who would like to sponsor our event.”

There will be four hole-in-one prize holes; Hole 11 ($500 cash), Hole 14 ($500 cash), Hole 18 ($500 cash) and Hole 3 ($10,000 cash), as well as closest to the pin and longest drive. The cost of the tournament is $75.00/per person ($300 per team) and includes a cart, 18 holes of golf, beverages, and dinner.

“The Friends Summer Scramble is a very fun and beneficial fundraiser,” said Perry. “Event proceeds go directly toward opportunities for people with special needs. Last year’s tournament allowed the Friends Foundation to provide training and educational opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities, practice jerseys, uniforms and travel accommodations for Allegany County’s Green Machine Special Olympics Teams, and much more.”
