Golf Tournament Aims to Help Nipmuc Hoops

For the fourth straight year, Jim Grant is hitting the links to help the basketball program he helped build. The longtime boys varsity head coach, who stepped down at the conclusion of this season, will host his fourth golf tournament fundraiser at Hopedale Country Club on Monday, May 13.
"As I find myself retired from the athletic director, and now the coaching positions, I want to do as much as I can in the background to support the program," said Grant.
The proceeds from the tournament will benefit the boys and girls programs at Nipmuc, as well as the Miscoe basketball program for younger athletes and the Warriors' booster club. The format is a Florida-style scramble, meaning best ball, and will be a shotgun start beginning at 9 a.m.
The entry fee is $70 for members of the Hopedale Country Club, and $110 for non-members. It includes the greens fees, a cart, a continental breakfast, lunch, and prizes. The food service at the club is managed by John McCarthy and former Boston Bruin Lyndon Byers.
"This fundraiser has been very successful over the past few years," said Grant, who said the tournament has raised about $4,000 in each of its first three years. "The first priority this year is to get the girls high school team new uniforms, they need them badly."
This past season, the golf tournament paid for new home and away shorts for the boys varsity team, as well as basketballs, warm-up jerseys, and reversible practice jerseys.
Those interested in playing in the tournament can contact Grant directly by either E-mailing djgrant2@verizon.net or calling 508-473-6109 or 774-573-3140. In addition to participants, the tournament is also seeking those who would like to donate items for raffle or auction to help support the cause.
