Shine up your golf clubs and sign up to raise money for Catholic schools in Scott County and Ottumwa.

On Aug. 5, Seton Catholic School’s second-annual golf outing will take place at Cedar Creek Golf Course in Ottumwa. Money raised will assist the school in keeping tuition costs down. Shotgun start is at 9:30 a.m. Teams of four will play best-ball. Entry fee is $50 per player, which includes cart, green fees, lunch and a t-shirt. To register call (641) 799-1284.

The annual Father Ken Martin Golf Outing will be held Aug. 30 at Emeis Golf Course in Davenport to raise money for emergency scholarship grants for students who attend Scott County Catholic schools. Over the years, more than $300,000 has been raised to benefit Scott County Catholic school students in grades K-12, according to Andy Craig, president of Assumption High School in Davenport. “Your donation will help children to continue their Catholic school education in spite of their family’s current financial crisis,” Craig said.


Supporters can golf and have dinner or just attend the dinner to be served at the Knights of Columbus Hall on 35th Street. Golf reservations include 18 holes of golf, cart, prizes and refreshments on the course, followed by dinner. The Scott County Catholic schools are Lourdes in Bettendorf and Assumption High, All Saints, John F. Kennedy and St. Paul the Apostle Catholic schools in Davenport.
