The golf tournament begins with a shofar start at 9 a.m. at Greenville Country Club on Oct. 21. Lunch will be available following the four-player scramble. There will be cash prizes for the top three teams, and all par 3 holes have prizes for holes in one. There is a $10,000 prize for a hole in one on the 14th hole.

Proceeds from the weekend benefit the Henry S. Jacobs Camp and the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life. Donations and tee box sponsorships are accepted.
