The Pioneer Title Agency Golf Tournament is one of the most anticipated sports events of the summer season.
Since its inception nine years ago, golfers have flocked to the links skirmish to test their course skills and at the same time contribute to a worthy cause -- the Payson Area Habitat for Humanity.
Last year, the tournament earned more than $6,200, which PAHH used to meet its mission of providing decent, affordable and healthy houses in partnership with low- and moderate-income Payson residents.
Organizers of the tournament, including Kim Muller of Pioneer Title and PAHH Fund-Raising Chairman Bob Charameda, have been busy the past several months putting together what they predict will be another banner outing.
Muller and Charameda expect a full field of 108 players to participate in the fray, set to tee off at 8 a.m., Aug. 13 at Payson Golf Course.
Wayne Donnay, PAHH public relations chairman, said players annually show up from Sierra Vista, Prescott, and from around the Valley, as well as Payson.
Among the attractions of the tourney: a variety of prizes and raffle items that have been rounded up by tournament volunteers Tom and Kim Rothwell.
"A hole-in-one challenge with a substantial cash prize is planned along with other contests," Donnay said.
The entry fee is $75 per person or $55 for members of the Payson Golf Course. Tournament directors will accept individual entries or foursomes.
Entry forms are available at Pioneer Title Agency, the Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Payson Roundup or the PAHH office at 1013 S. Goodfellow Road.
