Golfers get set to begin play in a previous Lindsey Riggs Memorial Golf Tournament at Orchard Hills.

The 11th annual Lindsey Riggs Foundation golf tournament will be held May 10 at Orchard Hills on Georgia Highway 16 south of Newnan.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. The four-person scramble will be $65 per player, $260 per team and includes green fees, cart, range balls, lunch and prizes.

There will be a chance to win a 2013 Buick for a hole in one.

All proceeds benefit the Lindsey Riggs Foundation and are tax deductible, organizers said.

The memorial fund foundation was created to benefit children with special needs and to assist students pursuing higher education. The purpose is to "promote Lindsey's core values including a love for God, a passion for people, a joy of giving and a dedication to learning," according to foundation members.
