April 4, 2017 GMT

For those looking for something different and fun to do Friday evening, the Junior Auxiliary of Corinth has the answer — golfing at night. One can have fun and help charity at the same time as the Junior Auxiliary of Corinth hosts the Glow in the the Dark Golf Tournament to benefit their many children’s charities. The unique golf tournament will be held Friday at Shiloh Ridge Golf Course. Registration begins at 6:30 p.m. and dinner will be served at 7 p.m. Glow in the Dark Golf Tournament Chairperson Shea Tyson said the dinner is a barbecue dinner provided by Johnson Dozier Service. The shotgun start to the tournament will be at 8 p.m. The idea, Tyson said, is to have fun and raise money to help the children of Alcorn County. “It’s really a fun tournament,” said Tyson. “We’re hoping for a good turnout and for everyone to have a good time.” With the added entertainment and challenge of having the tournament at night, players will have glow necklaces available. The golf balls used have special inserts which make them glow in the dark. Tyson said there will also be glowing tees and yardage markers. “There will be glow items to go on the golf carts, too,” said Tyson. The cost for the fundraiser is $65 per person / $260 per team — 9 holes/ 4-man scramble and $5 mulligans (one per person).?To register please email: corinthjagolftournament@gmail.com or Shiloh Ridge Golf Course or Contact Shea Tyson at 662-293-0180.
