Turns out...golf is the perfect pandemic sport. You can get outside, breath some fresh air, get in some exercise and most importantly, do all of that while you're social distancing. Over the past year, the sport of golf has seen a resurgence with more rounds played and booming equipment sales. Here's your chance to be part of the growing trend, while helping your community, get your four-some together and have fun playing golf for a great cause this summer.

The Cedar Valley United Way will host its 15th Annual United Way Golf Classic, presented by Scheels, on Friday, June 18, at South Hills Golf Course in Waterloo. The proceeds will benefit the 2021 Cedar Valley United Way Campaign supporting local programs that focus on health, education, financial stability and emergency and basic needs.

"The United Way Golf Classic focuses on bringing people together to score a 'hole-in-one' for our community. Each year at the United Way Golf Classic, we play golf to change lives and help provide the best life for individuals and families in our community." - per press release

Teams of four will play 18 holes with an 8-inch cup. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners of each flight will win prizes consisting of golf bags, clubs, balls, or apparel. Additional flag events will be available for longest drive, closest to the pin, and longest putt.
