Bent Tree’s annual Ice Breaker golf tournament is scheduled for next Saturday (January 11, 2020). The format is a fun two-person team scramble, with each player limited to only three clubs (no sharing). There are men’s and ladies’ divisions, and the start time is 10:00 a.m. Call or stop in at the Golf Pro Shop for more information.
