HOLTVILLE — Golfers filled the Barbara Worth golf course for a greater cause Sunday morning at the 17th Annual Tee Off for Autism golf tournament hosted by Autism Support of Imperial County at Imperial Palms Resort.

Tee off began at 8 a.m., with an $80 per player fee and all proceeds benefiting the Autism Support of Imperial County.

The event was held in a four-man scramble format. In this format, teams of four players compete against each other. After each team’s players hit from the tee box, team members choose the best of the four shots for the next shot. All team members then play the second shot from that location. They repeat the process for the following best shot and play continues in this manner until the hole is completed. The team records its score after each hole and maintains this format for all 18 holes.

Apart from the main four-man scramble format, there were also contests held such as lowest score, longest drive, and closest to pin. Prizes were awarded to each of the contest winners. A notable prize was a Jeep Cherokee, sponsored by Rogers & Rogers, awarded to any player who achieved a hole in one during the tournament.

The results of the tournament have the first place going to the team of  R. Allen, T. Williams, C. Allen and J. Verdugo.
