MOULTONBOROUGH — The Moultonborough Lions Club invites all golfers to participate in the 11th Annual "Ed Selleck Classic" Golf Tournament to be held at Ridgewood Country Club on Route 109 in Moultonborough. This four-person team scramble event will begin with a shotgun start at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, July 20 with an entry fee of $100 per person. All proceeds will go to support the community projects and activities organized and/or supported by the Moultonborough Lions Club.
This annual tournament is named in memory of former Lions Club member Ed Selleck, who dedicated countless hours of service to improve the lives of individuals in Moultonborough and surrounding communities. Ed truly loved the game of golf and greatly enjoyed the rolling hills and beautiful scenic views of area golf courses. The putting contest has been named the "Les Smith Memorial Putting Contest" in memory of Moultonborough resident Les Smith who loved playing at Ridgewood CC. Les played annually in the "Ed Selleck Classic" and regularly sponsored a tee for the tournament. The Bud Eisenberg Family is sponsoring the putting contest.
The entry fee includes 18 holes of golf, riding cart, prizes, a $10 Ridgewood CC Pro Shop gift certificate, coffee and muffins in the morning, and a BBQ lunch. Contests will include closest to the pins, longest and straightest drives, longest putt, putting and driving range (hit the floating raft). Features will include casino holes, mulligans, and Zinger Box. In addition, the Irwin Automotive Zone is sponsoring a Hole-in-One Contest with the first hole-in-one winning a new Ford vehicle for a 2-year lease.
New to our tournament this year, a random draw will allow one tournament entrant an opportunity to sink one 25' putt. The prize for making the putt is a Ridgewood CC membership for the remainder of the 2015 season.
Meredith Village Savings Bank, The Joseph M. Pasena Maroun Family Foundation, Conneston Construction Inc., and The Ed Selleck Family have generously agreed to be major tournament sponsors.
