BIG PRIZES AT STAKE IN ST. THOMAS GOLF TOURNEY

Nov. 26, 2002 – There might be a million dollars on the table when the St.Thomas-St. John Chamber of Commerce 10th annual Million Dollar Shoot-Out Golf Tournament finishes on Sunday, Dec. 8, at Mahogany Run Golf Course. There will be a lot of sure-thing prize dollars floating around, that's a certainty.
The tournament begins with a continental breakfast at 8 a.m. All golfers will receive a treasure bag filled with a golf rain vest, a packet of balls, tees, a hand towel, calling cards and spirits. The four-member Team Scramble Shotgun will start at 9 a.m.
"The Chamber is pleased to offer $20,000 prizes for a hole-in-one at holes 4, 8, 11, 14 and 16," said Chamber committee chairperson Ted Bast. "Prizes include: $20,000 shopping sprees, $20,000 cash, and a $20,000 car. The golfers closest to the pin on each par-three return at the end of the tournament to shoot for a million-dollar annuity on hole No. 9." Additionally, Bast said, "We have added a new feature to this year's Million Dollar Shoot-Out: the one player out of the five that is closest to the pin in the shoot-out will have the opportunity to putt from 50 feet for a cash prize of $2,500. Hole-in-ones do happen; at least 15 golfers achieved hole-in-ones this year at Mahogany Run Golf Course."
In addition to all the activity on the course, players will be treated to a buffet luncheon, and trophies and gift certificates will be awarded to the top five teams as well as to the men's and women longest drive.
Anyone interested in this event can call the Chamber of Commerce or sign up at the Mahogany Run Pro Shop. The entry fee is $100 per player.
