Are you ready to play spook-tacular golf? The Maricopa Historical Society will host the fifth annual Historic Golf Tournament on Saturday, Oct. 31, starting at 8 a.m.
The event at the Duke Golf Course at Rancho El Dorado includes an 18-hole scramble with lunch, a silent auction and a raffle to support the Maricopa Historical Society’s collection of artifacts and historical items.
Everyone is invited to “join us on Hallows morn to play a round for Maricopa’s history.” The society is excited to host this event for the fifth year and in celebration of Maricopa’s founding and its rich cultural history.
Last Year’s event was a huge success, with many golfers returning for another chance to earn bragging rights as well as in support of the organization and its commitment to Maricopa’s heritage.
The MHS continues to raise funds for a permanent home for its vast collection of historical items, which includes artifacts from all eras of Maricopa’s history – Native American, Spanish and American.
“Someday we hope to have a museum to keep history alive by showcasing artifacts reflecting our rich history and telling the story of our great city,” society President Brent Murphree said. “We still have a long road to reach our goal, and so our fund-raising efforts continue.”
Tournament play is $125 per golfer or $400 for a foursome. For those who simply would like to enjoy lunch beginning at 12:30 p.m., the ticket price is $25. In addition, sponsorship opportunities are available.
