The Sixth Annual Fayette Christian School golf tournament is set for Saturday, Sept. 26 at Buckeye Hills Golf Course near Greenfield.
The outing, for the sixth consecutive year, is being sponsored by Nick Epifano, owner and operator of McDonald’s of Fayette County and Jamestown.
The format is a four-person scramble with teams competing for prizes. Prizes will be given to the top three teams. There will be individual prizes for the longest drive, closest to the pin and longest putt.
Among the prizes are tickets to the Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals game, set for Thursday, Nov. 5, donated by Parrett Insurance and Cincinnati Reds tickets, donated by Halliday Lumber.
Check in and registration will begin at 8 a.m. on Sept. 26, with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. There will be a lunch and awards after golf.
The cost for an individual golfer is $50 and must be paid for prior to playing. Individual golfers will be assisted in forming teams with other individuals.
Hole sponsorships are available for $50 and $200.
“We’re blessed that we’re able to sponsor the tournament,” Epifano said. “Any time that we can partner with Fayette Christian School, we look forward to that. We’re also looking forward to a great golf outing. There are still plenty of spots available. We hope folks will be able to come out and play in this golf tournament and help the school.”
“We just appreciate so much McDonald’s being willing to sponsor the golf tournament every year,” Pastor Tony Garren of the Fayette Bible Church said. “It’s been a very big success, helping the school in many ways. It has helped provide for the kids, not only sports equipment, but computers and different educational things that help our school provide an excellent education in Fayette County.
“We appreciate all that McDonald’s has done for us over the years,” Garren said. “We’re looking for a good golf tournament and we hope to have more people come out.”
Fayette Christian School has approximately 150 students in grades K-4 through 12.
There are eight seniors in the Class of 2016, Garren noted. Graduates of FCS have gone on to attend college all over the United States, Garren said.
