Our Southern Illinois Golf Tournament is our oldest and highest grossing event of the year. During last year's tournament, we raised more than $67,000 for those in care at BCHFS. We hope you will help make this year's tournament be even more successful. Our tournament is a four-person, best ball scramble that will take place on Saturday, October 3, at Green Hills Golf Club in Mt. Vernon, IL. Two tee times are available—the first at 7:30 a.m. and the second at 1:00 p.m. The cost is $65 per golfer, and your entry fee covers greens and cart fees, a team photo and lunch at noon.

There will be numerous prizes in this flighted scramble including Longest Drive, Longest Putt, and Closest to the Pin competitions. The tournament will also feature multiple Hole-in-One prizes including a golf cart and a trip for two to Hawaii! If you are a golfer, gather your four-player team and join BCHFS for our 18th Annual Southern Illinois Golf Tournament. You will have a great time for a great cause!
