CUMMING, Ga. — Atlanta's largest charitable golf event will be held by the YMCA of Metro Atlanta Oct. 7.

The Forsyth County Family YMCA in Cumming is hosting the tournament at the Windermere Course in Cumming.

The event is open to all.

"Through preschool, after-school, summer camp and teen programs at the Y, young people build self-confidence, develop interpersonal skills, empower change, overcome obstacles and become leaders," said Jackie Johnson of the Forsyth County Family YMCA. "Proceeds from the golf event will enable all kids to participate in Y programs."

Golfers select a course to play along with the Y that will benefit from their participation. In addition to the Windermere course, participating courses include Canongate One in Sharpsburg, Smoke Rise in Stone Mountain, Eagle Watch in Woodstock, Hamilton Mill in Dacula and Heron Bay in Locust Grove. The cost is $100 per player and includes a four-person scramble, lunch, dinner and awards following golf.

Tee off is 11 a.m. Players of all levels are welcome.
