Golf outing and car show set for July 31 at the Highlands

Golfers and classic car owners are invited to take part in the first-ever Clubs & Chrome Golf Outing and Car Show from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 31,  at Riverview Highlands Golf Club.

The event will award prizes to winning golf teams and winning classic cars. Golfers need not be classic car owners and car owners need not be golfers, but classic cars will be parked in a private area. Golfers are invited to enjoy the cars after they are done golfing.

The outing was the idea of classic car owner and Riverview Mayor Andrew Swift and Assistant City Manager Jeff Dobek who are looking to provide more original and creative events to the city-owned and -operated Riverview Highlands. The Mayor’s Mustang GT will be one of the cars on site.

Organizers have planned an 18-hole scramble with four golfers per team in a regular and mixed (men and women) division. The entry fee is $400 per foursome. Use of golf carts, lunch at the turn, two beverage tickets per golfer and dinner are all included.

The car show is open to all makes and models. Admission is $10 per entry.

Besides the awards, which will be presented at 3 p.m., the day will include free CPR lessons, a trivia contest, a 50/50 drawing and a disc jockey playing music. Food and drinks will be available.

Clubs & Chrome is sponsored by Grundy Insurance, Cruisin Classics Agency and Riverview Highlands.
