Cape May County’s 4-H Horse Council invites golfers, sponsors and donors to be part of the 13th annual 4-H golf tournament. The 4-H fundraiser will take place Sunday, April 24th, at the Avalon Golf and Country Club, Swainton, New Jersey.

All proceeds from the tournament go directly to 4-H educational costs, including the 4-H Memorial Scholarship Program and youth participation in state and national 4-H events. Horse Council has contributed $22,000 to the 4-H scholarship program in the last 12 years. With these funds, 31 scholarships have been provided to Cape May County 4-H youth for college. A portion of this year’s proceeds will be used to renovate the horse clubs’ 40-year-old horse show arena.

Tournament entry fees are $100 per person or $385 per foursome, but there is an early bird rate of $375 per team if registered and paid by April 1, 2016.
The entry fee includes green fees, carts, registration gifts, door prizes, an Italian buffet dinner and delicious homemade desserts made by 4-H youth. The tournament features Longest Drive, Closest to Pin, and Putting Contests as well as a Hole-in-One car sponsored by Kindle Ford. Tournament registration begins at 10:30 a.m. with the shotgun kickoff at noon. Prizes will be awarded to the top three tournament teams and the top coed team.

Donations to the tournament are tax deductible. If you would like to play in the tournament, please call the 4-H office, at 609-465-5115, ext. 605, or email

The 4-H Youth Development Program is part of Rutgers Cooperative Extension. 4-H educational programs are offered to all youth, grades K-13, on an age-appropriate basis, without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.
