Hope Station’s seventh annual Trick or Treat Golf Tournament promises fun plus an opportunity to help drive out hunger and homelessness in Wilson County.

The Oct. 31 tournament at Wedgewood Golf Course will provide 100 percent of its net proceeds for food to hungry families and emergency shelter for homeless men in Wilson County. A few team spots are still open.

S.T. Wooten is the presenting sponsor this year, with Bridgestone as a gold sponsor and Thomas Law as a bronze sponsor. Additional sponsorships are available through Wednesday at $1,000, $600 and $300 levels.

What makes this superball tournament hauntingly fun is that players are required to do more than just get their ball in the hole. At one hole, teams may answer golf trivia questions to move their ball closer to the hole. At another hole, all players use the same club for every shot. On another hole, golfers will putt around spooky obstacles. Each hole has an unusual treat in the way it is played.

The tournament begins at 11 a.m. with a box lunch and then a shotgun start at noon. Awards will be presented at 4:30 p.m.

Wednesday is the deadline to register. A four-person team entry is $325.
