The Oxford Park Commission is hosting its third annual Double Decker golf tournament at the Ole Miss Golf Course April 25. The tournament begins at 8:30 a.m. Cost to enter is $225 for a three-person team. Those that wish to sponsor a team can do so for $225, while corporate sponsorships are $500. Money raised for the tournament will go to providing free swim lessons for children in need. Last summer 200 children received free swim lessons.
Those that can’t participate in the tournament or sponsor a team can donate $30 for a child to have lessons. Checks can be made payable to the Oxford Park Commission.
