Prizes: A hole-in-one prize of a two-year lease on a 2001 Cadillac DeVille will be offered, and other prizes are as follows: $400 pro shop gift certificate and plaque for each member of the first-place team, $300 pro shop gift certificates to second-place team members; $200 pro shop gift certificates to third-place team members; and four dozen golf balls to members of the fourth- and fifth-place teams.
