There's a saying that goes, "the worst day on the golf course beats the best day at the office," or something to that effect. I may not have it spot on, but you get the idea. And, if you're a fan of the game, you likely agree. There are few things more enjoyable than hitting the course on a nice day and smacking a few golf balls around the course; even on those days when most of your drives whip to the right and land two fairways over, or every putt you try comes up short, or grazes the edge of the cup, but doesn't fall in. There's just something about being outside on a nice day, hanging out with a few friends, and smacking a few golf balls around the course. The only thing that makes it better, is when it helps a local non-profit.

The West Side Nut Club will host its annual golf scramble on Friday, August 13th (2021) at Helfrich Hills Golf Course on Mesker Park Drive with check-in set for 7:00 AM followed by a shotgun start at 8:00. The cost is $400 per team, or $100 per player if you have trouble finding three other people to play with you. Not to imply you have no friends, but it is on a Friday, so it could be difficult for your buddies to get off work. I'm sure you have plenty of friends.

Registration can be done online. The registration form does mention that registration ends on August 2nd, but obviously has been extended so you can ignore that.

Like they do with the annual Fall Festival and other fundraisers they host, the Nut Club will reinvest proceeds from the scramble back into the community through specific grants and funding projects the entire community can enjoy.
