The 28th annual Jay Mosow Memorial Delta Jewish Golf Open, a fundraiser and “family reunion” for the Jewish communities in the Mississippi Delta, will be on Nov. 1 at the Greenville Country Club.
Sponsored by members of the Hebrew Union Congregation in Greenville, the tournament has raised over $90,000 for the Henry S. Jacobs Camp and Institute for Southern Jewish Life. In addition, the weekend has become a time for Jews who are originally from the Delta to come back and visit with old friends.
One does not need to be a golfer to enjoy the festivities.
The open begins with the evening party, held at Hebrew Union Congregation on Oct. 31. A social hour begins at 6:30 p.m. with an open bar and hors d’oeuvres, while members grill steaks behind the building.
During the dinner, which starts at 7:45 p.m., mulligans may be purchased and teams are announced. There are also prizes and drawings.
The scramble-style tournament begins at 9 a.m. on Nov. 1. A shofar blast signals time to tee off. Lunch is available afterward, dutch treat.
The winning team gets $500, with $280 going to the second-place team and $160 for third place. A hole-in-one on the 14th hole wins $10,000, while there will be other prizes for holes in one on all par-3 holes. There will also be “closest to pin” and “longest drive” prizes.
Registration is $120 for an individual golfer, $135 for a golfer with a non-golfing date, and $195 for golfing couples. A non-golfing couple is $75, a non-golfing individual is $40. All donations are welcomed.
Tee box sponsorships are also available, for $100. A sign will be placed at the tee box.
Registration can be sent to Barry Piltz, 1129 Oxford Place, Greenville, MS 38701. Registration deadline is Oct. 26.
