4-H Benefit Golf Tournament Scheduled for October 19

The annual Denny Wayland Memorial 4-H Golf Tournament will be held Monday, October 19, to benefit Orange and Madison County 4-H Programs. The Captain's Choice tournament will be held at Greene Hills Club with a 1:00 p.m. shotgun start. Lunch-to-go and dinner are included with the tournament, plus an unlimited soda and snack wagon and a chance to win $5,000 with a hole-in-one on Hole 18. 

Cost is $80 per player or $320 for a team. Hole sponsorships of $100 each are also available. 

The tournament is held in memory of Denny Wayland, a Madison native and longtime Orange 4-H volunteer. Denny was also a field man for Orange-Madison Coop and was greatly admired and appreciated by local farmers and members of the community. He was instrumental in raising funds to support anything for the benefit of children, and that's exactly how proceeds from this tournament will be used. 4-H youth development reaches youth ages 5-18 with projects teaching leadership, citizenship, and life skills.
