— The annual Amy Bull Crist Memorial Ladies Golf Open will be held at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 19, at Stony Ford Golf Course, 211 State Route 416, Montgomery.

Long-time tournament sponsor Johnstons Toyota and owner John Jardine will offer special hole-in-one prizes on all par threes, including a 2018 Toyota to any player who aces the 173-yard 17th hole.

The tournament, which will have a shotgun start, will award first-, second- and third-place prizes in the two-person best ball, while scramble divisions will receive golf merchandise prizes from the Stony Ford Pro Shop. Also featured will be longest drive, closest-to-the-pin and accuracy drive contests, as well as a wide variety of door prizes courtesy of the Stony Ford Ladies Golf League.

The $85 entry fee includes greens fee, golf cart, all prizes and giveaways, a continental breakfast, refreshments on the turn and an awards luncheon.

The tournament was a personal favorite of the late Mrs. Crist, known as “The First Lady of Orange County.” Crist enjoyed presiding over the festivities at the golf outing for many years with her unique blend of charm, humor and wisdom.
