The family of Merle Clark and the Belton Booster Club is playing host to the second annual Merle Clark Golf Tournament on Saturday, April 26. Eagles Landing Golf Course will be the site of the tournament and all contributions from the event will be used to fund the $1,000 Merle Clark Athlete of the Year Scholarship.
This award has been presented for the past 17 years to the top senior athlete in the Belton School District who plays two or more sports in their four year high school career and has maintained an accumulative GPA of at least a 3.0. The cost of the tournament is $75 per player with the format in a four-man scramble.
Breakfast and lunch is included in the price of the tournament and each player will receive a $10 gift card to Golfsmith and a week pass to the Web.com Tour Tournament that will take place in July in Overland Park, Kan.
They are still accepting registration for players and any business that would like to sponsor the event. To participate or help sponsor the Merle Clark Golf Tournament, call Mike Clark at 816-309-2731 or Ryan Clark at 816-352-4244.
