Barton Community College’s ninth-annual Wounded Warrior Golf Scramble, which benefits wounded soldiers from Fort Riley, is set for Saturday, Sept. 23. The deadline to register is Sept. 15.

The Wounded Warrior Golf Scramble is an opportunity to support our Soldiers and thank them for their dedicated service to our country.

Shotgun start is set for 9:30 a.m. at the Rolling Meadows Golf Course in Junction City. Standard four-man golf scramble rules apply.

This year’s tournament is being held in celebration of the 100th year of the Big Red One with several “100” themed prizes, including two $100 Amazon gift certificates.

Individual golfers not on a team will be assisted in joining teams still being formed. Members of Barton’s men’s and women’s golf teams will be available to join any team that needs extra players.

Entry fee is $60 per person, which includes the day of golfing, cart, meal and participation gifts. The tournament is limited to the first 22 teams to sign up.
