Applewood Ford will be donating a car if a golfer gets a hole in one on the 11th hole.

The annual North Island Loggers Golf Tournament is set to return to the Seven Hills Golf and Country Club June 16-17, and so far they have 140 golfers signed up to play.

Loggers Golf Committee member Bill Gray said there’s only room for 198 golfers total, so if you want to play in the tournament, which features tons of great prizes, make sure to sign up ASAP as the early deadline ends June 1.

Gray added Applewood Ford has graciously decided to donate a car if a golfer gets a hole in one on the 11th hole.
