The Un-Annual Carl Spackler Invitational Golf Tournament

This looks like it could be a lot of fun.  Taken from the official website:

A few years ago, we hosted a "Carl Spackler" tournament at The Refuge and raised more than $10,000.  Now we're doing it again for yet another good cause.  Golf course superintendent Bill Whatley's wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in April and has already undergone her initial surgery/treatment, with more treatments to come.  We want to help Michelle and Bill offset some of the medical bills they will be facing and we thought "What better way than another Carl Spackler tournament?"

Bill and Michelle didn't ask for this tournament, but I felt like it was the right thing to do.  And if you know anything about golf in this part of the country it is that the golf industry in Mississippi and Louisiana is a close knit group of superintendents, golf professionals, managers, etc. and we come together to help our own. 
So, on Carl's behalf (because he's busy on the course right now), I would like to personally invite you to participate in The "Un-Annual Carl Spackler Invitational" benefiting Michelle and Bill Whatley be held Tuesday, June 18, 2013 at The Refuge in Flowood, Mississippi.

FORMAT:  4 Man Scramble (bring your best foursome), but the field is limited to the first 27 paid teams (108 players)
COST:  $75/person ($300/team).  All proceeds from the event will go directly to Michelle and Bill.
WHAT'S INCLUDED:  Catered lunch, 18 holes with cart, range balls, tee gift, and unlimited fun.
DATE and TIME:  Tuesday, June 18, 2013.  Lunch will begin at 11:30 am.  Shotgun start at 1:00 pm.
TOURNAMENT SETUP:  Once again this year, we are going to let Carl set up the golf course for the event.  We hear rumors that again this time there may be greens with multiple pins, pin placements on side slopes and tops of knolls, obstacles, on-course games, and maybe even mole traps and more to play around....whatever we end up with, you can rest assured that it will be the most unique and fun event you've played in since....well, the last Carl Spackler event we hosted!
ON-COURSE CONTESTS:  We already have commitments for a brand new golf cart from Ben Nelson Golf Cars and and others for hole-in-one prizes.  We get more each day, so we'll give you a full list the day of the event.
