Getting a golf ball closest to the pin could win you $25,000, and you don’t even have to swing a club or be present to win. The 4th annual Golf Ball Drop will benefit the Fight Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Foundation founded by Dickson County residents Terry and Sonya Marlin. 500 numbered golf balls will be dropped from a helicopter over the driving range at GreyStone Golf Club. If one of the 10 balls closest to the target is on a list of preselected numbers, somebody will win $25,000. Golf balls can be sponsored for $20 each at fightdmd.com. The Marlins’ sons, Jonah and Emory, were both diagnosed in 2009 with DMD, a degenerative genetic muscular dystrophy that is disabling by preteen years and fatal by the early 20s. The Fight DMD Foundation is working to raise half a million dollars to start a DMD research center at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. The golf ball drop will be held Oct. 11, the same day as the 4th annual Golf Fore a Cure Tournament to benefit Fight DMD. Playing in the tournament is $125 per player or $500 for a team of four. Hole sponsorships are available. For more information on the Golf Ball Drop or Golf Four a Cure Tournament for Fight DMD at GreyStone, visit fightdmd.com.
