Craig Wood Golf Club will host a tournament to support the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge and Rehabilitation Center with a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, July 10.
The Adirondack Wildlife Refuge and Rehabilitation Center is located on 50 acres in Wilmington, N.Y. and includes a one mile educational hiking trail, which also serves as a Public Fishing Access trail, and enclosures for education. The Refuge, created in 2009, is the largest wildlife rehabiliatation facility in the Adirondacks, rescuing hundreds of birds, mammals and reptiles. In addition to rehabilitating injured, diseased and orphaned wildlife for release into the wild, the public is also invited to visit their educational animals - those whose injurires were so sever that they could not be relased. Today, the Refuge attracts thousands of visitors annually and presents educational programs for schools, churches, scouts and other community groups.
Birds onsite for education and viewing include Red-Tailed Hawks, Broad-Winged Hawks, Rough-Legged Hawks, Swainsons Hawks, Peregrine Falcons, Great Horned Owls, Barred Owls, Screech Owls, Turkey Vultures and Ravens.
The tournament will help to fund ongoing work at the Refuge, including a new brand new wolf enclosure.
Prizes to be awarded for longest drives and closest to the pin for men and women. A 2015 Ford Escape from Plattsburgh Ford can be won for a hole-in-one. Lunch, awards and a raffle for awesome prizes, including a new driver, will follow the tournament.
Check-in and light breakfast will be held from 8:15-9:15 a.m. with a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m. Entry fees are $75 for a single folder and $300 per foursome. Luncheon only is $20 and Tee Sponsorship is available at $100.
