HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Rise Up Reno will hold the annual Putting For Prevention Golf Tournament on June 21, 2024 at Crazy Horse Golf Course.

"We still have some spots left," said John Young with Rise Up Reno. "We're shooting to get probably about 70 to 80 golfers is what we're shooting for this year kind of to grow on. Last year was the first year of our event so we're still looking to fill a couple more spots. This year we're having a two-man scramble. Last year we did a four-man. This year we decided to do a two-man and then we're also looking for a few more hole sponsors and stuff just kind of finish that out as well."

Check-in will be at 8:00 a.m., with a shotgun start at 9 a.m.

"This is something we started last year and I know everyone that came said they had a great time," Young said. "I know it was fun to put on and also just fun to be able to go out and also talk to people about some of the things we do during the day and we had a lot of a lot of contests that make it a little bit unique." 

The winner of the longest putt contest will receive a 7-night 8-day resort stay for two with their choice of several destinations. There will be a hole-in-one contest where the winner will receive $10,000. Longest Drive contest for a man & woman's drive, where the winners will get a spa package.  Four lucky players will be chosen to compete in the $100,000 Shoot-out, as well. Lunch will be held after the tournament.

 "Last year, you know on all the tee boxes we tried to put some facts about drug misuse, suicide prevention, and also just the benefit of having mentors," Young said. "People can kind of learn about those opportunities as well as why the programs that we have are very important as they go around and play golf and visit and have a good time."
