Groups of one to four golfers may enter, single golfers will be paired up with other groups. The day will begin with breakfast at 9 am, tee time at 10, followed by lunch. There will be prizes and auctions for all sorts of gear, including a set of irons custom made by Andy Fawsett. Hit a hole in one, and win a car. Attendees will have the chance to meet birds of prey, along with Kiska, a young gray wolf, who’s known for making balls disappear. Local businesses still have time to sponsor a hole.

To sign up for the tournament, call Herb Crispell at (518) 946-7743, or email crispcook43@yahoo.com.

The Craig Wood Golf Club is located at 141 Country Club Lane, in Lake Placid.

The Adirondack Wildlife Refuge is a 501C non-profit, which rehabilitates injured and sick wildlife, and performs educational presentations for schools, colleges, scouting groups, as well as many other private and public organizations.

In addition, thousands of local residents and vacationers annually visit the Refuge at 977 Springfield Road in Wilmington, to meet and learn about gray wolves, eagles, raptors, coywolves, coyotes, fox, bobcat and many other creatures, or to picnic in a beautiful park, or hike the two miles of short, family friendly trails at the Refuge.
