Annie Oakley Golf Tournament to be held July 24, 2017

Preparations for the 36th Annual Annie Oakley Golf Tournament are underway! Last year 100 golfers signed up for the 18-hole event, which benefited the Cancer Association of Darke County. Committee members for the tournament are Matt & Angie Arnold, Kent & Lynn James, Todd and Beth Durham, Ray & Bettye Laughlin, Ed & Kay Curry, Larry Ullery and Christine Lynn.

Last year’s tournament was very successful and the event raised $17,200.00 for the Cancer Association of Darke County. This fundraiser helped the association to provide benefits to over 250 Darke County residents battling cancer.

This year’s tournament is scheduled for July 24th at the Turtle Creek Golf Course and will feature a shotgun start with scramble format, chances to win great prizes and dinner for the golfer and their guest. Most importantly, the proceeds from this fun and exciting event will once again benefit the local and independent Cancer Association of Darke County.

Lunch will be served at 11:15 a.m. with tee off time scheduled for 12:15 p.m. Each golfer has the opportunity to win a new car for a hole-in-one on the sixth and seventeenth hole. Any golfer getting a hole-in-one in the eighth hole will win their choice of premium golf equipment. The golfer getting a hole-in-one on the eleventh hole will win a Yamaha Golf Cart.
Call 548-9960 for details or email

This year a new opportunity is being introduced for those who want to support local cancer patients. A Garden of Memories will be located at the golf course and will honor those who are gone but never forgotten. To remember a loved one on the day of the tournament, garden signs will be available at $100 each and will be placed in the Garden of Memories.
