The New Bern Historical Society invites you to “Tee It Up Fore History” at the 3rd Annual Historical Society Golf Tournament on Sunday, June 12, at the Carolina Colours Golf Club. Executive Director Mickey Miller expects this to be a special event, full of fun. “You’ll enjoy a great day of golf, a delicious dinner and support the New Bern Historical Society all at the same time.”

This superball tournament is open to the public, but space is limited. Golfers can sign up as an individual, couple or foursome. There are still spots open. Cost is $90 per person and includes green fees, cart, unlimited range balls, prizes, goodie bag, and a lavish post-golf dinner at Carolina Colours Pavilion. Please register soon as spaces are filling up.

There are cash prizes for the 1st and 2nd place men, women and couples, and for the longest drive and closest to the pin for both men and women. There are four Hole-In-One prizes with a whopping $40,000 towards the purchase of a new Nissan vehicle from East Carolina Nissan for a hole-in-one on #6, and other great prizes for holes-in-one on #2, #12, and #16.

Registration opens at 11:00 a.m. Tee off, with a shotgun start, is at 1:30 p.m. Lunch will be available for purchase from 11:00 a.m.
