BARK makes good in 2nd golf tourney
It was the first golf tournament of the year at Bosque Valley Golf Club and it was for a good cause.
BARK dog shelter held its second annual golf tournament Saturday. And although the coronavirus pandemic has canceled all other golf tournaments in the area and delayed BARK’s May tourney to the middle of summer, it was a great turnout according coordinator Jackie Murski.
“There are teams that came from Granberry, Waco and Fort Worth, so I’m excited about our reach,” Murski said.
“Covid definitely set us back in our donations, so we needed this.”
The tournament fees and 16 sponsors raised more than $3,000. The teams could also buy three ‘mulligans,’ or do-overs, per nine holes and a 10-foot cheat string.
“If you are putting and didn’t get that ball in on a par three you can measure the ball from the hole and then cut off the length of the cheat string,” Murski said.
“There’s a lot of handicap, but we want everyone to do well and have fun.”
BARK was also holding a gun raffle for a specific dog named Foxy, in attempt to raise funds to help pay for her surgery. Foxy was run over by a car and had to have a leg amputated.
Marski said they did well, raising more than $3,000 from the 40 participants on the 10 teams and the 16 sponsors for the tournament, not including the extra money from the mulligans and the cheat string.
