Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage SA552583000

Labor Day's Monday. How do you and your family plan on spending it? Playing on the lake? Offroading through the desert? Options make the Lake Havasu lifestyle so desirable. With September just around the corner, we start September off with a bit of fun: the Havasu First Friday Kickoff Party and a 5-Iron Tournament.

Havasu First Friday for the new season starts September 6th with a free kickoff party. Then, on the 7th, join the Kiwanis 5-iron tournament for some fairway fun.

The Kiwanis of Lake Havasu put the "fun" in "fundraiser" with this crazy tournament. Instead of lugging an entire bag full of clubs, bring just your 5-iron to battle each hole on the golf course. Driving from the fairway or the tee? 5-iron. Need to putt? 5-iron. Lay-up? 5-iron. Land in a hazard? 5-iron. Any shot you need to make must be made with just your 5-iron.

This four-person scramble starts at 7:30 am sharp. If you don't have three other buddies to make up a four-man team, just say so. Organizers put golfers together to create a team if needed. Cash prizes awarded to the top two places. Longest drive (men and women), longest putt, and closest to the pin receive prizes, too. Plus, if you land a hole-in-one, you could receive as much as $10,000. Contact Ginger or Armando for more information and to sign up to participate. Or download a copy of the registration form, complete it and send it in.

Hi Liz Miller,

One of the reasons I ended up in Sedona Arizona was our past boating life on Lake Havasu and the Colorado River.  I go back to the early 1970s when there was nothing there! 

This is a great post to highlight what is happening on Labor Day weekend!
