OLD TOWN, Maine  — The ninth annual John Bapst Hockey Boosters Golf Tournament will tee off with a shotgun start at 8 a.m.  Saturday, June 21, at Hidden Meadows Golf Course in Old Town. Registration is at 7 a.m.

The golf tournament is the Booster’s biggest fundraiser of the year, organizers said. The hockey program will have full varsity and junior varsity teams this year.

Organizers said the tournament is traditionally a fun day with hockey, golf and community supporters competing on the greens for valuable prizes.

Prizes will go to the top three teams, closest to the pin, longest drive and chipping contests. Golfers also will have the opportunity to have a local celebrity golfer take a drive for them, test their skill with a hockey stick on the putting green and try to drive a golf ball into a hockey net.

Before the shotgun start, players can warm up with coffee and donuts and get a $5 bucket of balls for the driving range. After 18 holes, players can enjoy a barbecue lunch.

Community support can be given by participating as a golfer, through tee sponsorships or product and merchandise donations.

If a company wishes to put together a team and sponsor a hole, the Boosters make it easy, organizers said. One $400 check can be written to cover four golfers, hole sponsorship, golf carts, meals, mulligans and string.

To enter a team only, the $300 level includes four players, golf carts, meals, mulligans and string.

Single tee sponsorships are available at $125 each.
