For those looking to enjoy the weather and contribute to a good cause can look toward the 4th Annual Ty Reed Memorial Golf Classic.

The event being held on May 14 starting at 8:30 a.m. at Bear Creek Country Club off Hwy 138 in Monroe is $70 per person or $280 per team with all proceeds benefiting the Ty Reed Scholarship fund.

Reed was as senior at Morgan County High School in 1993 when he was killed in a car accident just before his high school graduation.

Reed's father Tim is co-owner of Masters Landscape and mother Caren is a teacher at Veterans Middle School.

Tim and Karen established the scholarship shortly after Ty's death in his memory.

Beginning with an 8:45 a.m. shotgun start the tournament is a four-man scramble/captains choice which also features a hole in one contest for $25,000, in which the shot maker will receive $12,500 and the scholarship $12,500.

There will be other contests such as two longest drive holes, two closest to the pin holes, a closest to the line hole, a putting contest and two mulligans.

Lunch, door prizes and refreshment will be available.

For registration make check payable to Ty Reed Golf and send to Steve Blanton at 320 Wildflower Drive, Social Circle, Ga.
