Area golfers are "itching" to bust out their clubs and "hit the links". Now, if "Mother Nature" would just cooperate. It'll be great to get outside, breathe some fresh air, get in some exercise, and hang out with your friends. It's time to get your foursome together and have fun playing golf for a great cause this summer.

The Cedar Valley United Way will host its 16th Annual United Way Golf Classic, presented by Scheels, on Friday, June 17, at South Hills Golf Course in Waterloo. The proceeds will benefit the 2022 Cedar Valley United Way Campaign supporting local programs that focus on health, education, financial stability, and emergency and basic needs.

Teams of four will play 18 holes with an 8-inch cup. This 4-person best shot tournament will have a noon shotgun start. Check-in and lunch begins at 10am. The cost is just $125-dollars per player, which includes greens and cart fees, lunch, dinner, a $50 Scheels gift card, and chances to win thousands of dollars worth of prizes. That's is an OUTSTANDING deal for an afternoon of fun on the golf course.

Their website explains that you can purchase a "Super Ticket" for $40 in advance and $50 at check-in which gives you access to all hole event contests and you'll receive five raffle tickets. Plus, you'll be entered into a drawing for one of five golfers to shoot for a $100,000 cash prize or the chance to be drawn to putt for $1,000 cash.
