For the 10th year in a row Gainesville Action Ministries welcomes all golf enthusiasts to its annual golf tournament.

The golf tournament is a chance to raise money for the local ministry that assists in providing services to those on the brink of hunger, homelessness and addiction. The ministry is primarily focused on providing services to the Gainesville/Hall County area and is supported by a network of 17 churches in the Hall County.

"We've got different church teams and a little church team rivalry," said Terri Armour, the administrative assistant and assistant programs coordinator for Gainesville Action Ministries. "We have several banks that are supporting us this year and we hope to get a little friendly rivalry going in between the guys and gals and it's just a day of fun and fellowship to support a great, great cause."

Over the last nine years the organization has raised about $10,000 to $12,000 a year.

"To provide for our assistance programs and it basically goes for as a line item on our budget for assistance and overhead and to help ministry run day-to-day," Armour said.

Around 50 to 60 golfers are expected for the tournament and there are $100 prizes for the first place team, door prizes and a new car for the lucky golfer who hits a hole-in-one.

The tournament will tee off at noon on Nov. 4 at Chicopee Woods Golf Course in Gainesville.

The cost is $100 per player which includes green and cart fees, lunch and refreshments, gifts, prizes and trophies.
