Amherst - The newly formed Amherst Ramblers Alumni Scholarship Society is hosting a Texas Scramble Golf Tournament at the Amherst Golf Club on Saturday August 23rd.

Its a fund raising event for the scholarship society, so were really going to focus on making this tournament a lot of fun for golfers and non-golfers, said tournament chair Bill Chapman. Everyone is going to get a prize based on a draw, not on the lowest score.

The merchants of Amherst and area have been generous as usual, stated Chapman. In addition to donations of merchandise and gift certificates, we have some spectacular hole-in-one prizes compliments of Amherst Insurance and Fort Equipment. Someone could win a Ford Focus from Hathaway Ford or a new Kubota Tractor.

The Amherst and Area Chamber of Commerce has also provided a prize of $10,000 to be redeemed at any member organization.

Were still working on finding one more major hole-in-one sponsor, and were hoping to announce the final prize in the near future, said Chapman. Weve also got a few spaces for teams left, so were working hard to fill them. The more money we raise, the more bursaries we can provide so were hoping for a very successful tournament. Its so expensive to get an education these days; wed like to help as many student athletes as possible.

The Amherst Ramblers Alumni Scholarship Society is a non-profit society formed to provide bursaries to athletes living or playing in the Amherst area.

Membership is open to all present and past players, coaching staff, training staff, general managers, executives, sponsors, volunteers and supporters of the Amherst Junior Ramblers, Amherst Junior A. Mooseheads, Amherst Senior Ramblers, and the Amherst St. Pats Intermediate A. Hockey teams.
