Those who enjoy golfing and supporting a good cause are welcome to participate in the annual Golf Challenge hosted by the Wilson Habitat for Humanity.

The event is scheduled for  Sept. 9 at Five Oaks Golf & Country Club.


Any team, individual or businesses wanting to participate can register before Sept. 4 online at www.habitatnashville.org/Divisio..., or by calling Tory Tredway, director of Wilson Habitat, at 453-4539.  You may also contact Tredway if your business or civic group is interested in being a sponsor.


“We have so much fun at Habitat’s tournament each year! Most participants are not great golfers, but we are golfing for a great cause. To support Habitat in this way is a privilege,” said Greg Smith, Habitat advisory board member and Golf Challenge chairman.


The Golf Challenge will open with registration/sign-in at 10 a.m. and the shotgun scramble will begin at noon. Lunch will be provided. The challenge features a unique mulligan package for each team. Awards for competitive/fun categories will be presented at the conclusion of the tournament. All proceeds support the work of Habitat of Wilson County in providing quality, affordable homes for low-income residents.


“We are using golf as a way to tell the Habitat story.  Each year there are families in Wilson County who benefit from the services provided by Habitat. For a family to have the opportunity to purchase a home from Habitat is life-changing.  Supporting Habitat through our Golf Challenge means that additional, local families will be provided with an affordable homeownership opportunity,” Tredway said.


Wilson Habitat completed two homes in the spring for two hard-working families: Erica Neuble, who has two children, and Sarah Caves, who has five children. Wilson Habitat will get underway with its Fall Build on Oct. 26. For more information on that project or to find out how to become a Habitat homeowner, call the Wilson Habitat office at 453-4539.
