MILTON-FREEWATER — It’s time to pull out the golf clubs and take a few practice swings before the P.E.O. Golf Tournament.

In its eighth year, the event helps support scholarships through P.E.O., a philanthropic organization that supports and celebrates the advancement of women. In the past 12 years, local P.E.O. chapters have sponsored women in our community with more than $100,000 in grants/scholarships.

The golf tournament is Saturday, June 1 at 8 a.m. at the Milton-Freewater Golf Course, 301 Catherine Ave. It’s a two-person alternate shot event with men’s and women’s mixed divisions.

The entry fee of $50 per person includes green fees and lunch. Additional lunch tickets are $10. The event also includes raffles, games and prizes, and a contest for the longest putt, closest to the pin and the shortest drive.

There are a limited number of golf cart rentals available, so reservations are needed. The entry deadline is Thursday, May 30. To register, call George Gillette at 541-938-7284 or stop by the pro shop.
