Now Taking Tee Time "Fore" the
Scottish Rite Golf Outing
It is time for the annual Scottish Rite Golf outing. This is your chance to take a Friday afternoon off and spend some time on the course. Our friends at Terrace Hills Golf Course in Altoona have generously allowed us a Friday afternoon to have our outing. The cost is $80 per person. It will include 18 holes of golf (cart included), prizes, and a steak dinner following play. The event is an outing, so keep score if you want but the idea is to have fun. It is open to all. This might be a great chance to invite your non-Masonic golfing buddy along for a chance to see what we are all about.
When? Friday June 10, 2011 Where? Terrace Hills Golf Course, Altoona How Much? $80 (Fees, cart, dinner, & prizes) Time? Shotgun start at 12:45 PM. Why? To have fun and raise money for Scottish Rite Care and the Des Moines Consistory Building Trust.
Please call the office (515-288-8927) to reserve a place and/or to sponsor a hole.
