CANTON -- The Potsdam Humane Society (PHS) will host its 4th annual “Pars for Paws Golf Tournament” Friday, July 25 at Partridge Run Country Club, 70 Sullivan Dr.

The format features four-person teams at a cost of $60 per player, which includes all green fees, cart fees and dinner.

“This is going to be a great day of golf, fun, food and prizes…all of which benefits PHS,” said Suzanne Smith, PHS board member and tournament chair.

Contests include longest drive and closest to the pin as well as a chance to win a hole-in-one prize of $10,000 on a designated hole.

“Every year we get a great turnout and wonderful support. We invite all animal-loving golfers to join us. It’s also a terrific opportunity for young golfers and their families to play together for a great cause,” Smith said.
