One of the holes from the 2017 'Putt 'Fore' the Library' at the Penn Area Library. This year's event is set for March 23 and 24, 2018.

It's not exactly the rolling hills of Augusta National Golf Club, but unlike the world-famous Masters course, the “greens fees” charged March 23 and 24 will go to benefit the Penn Area Library's programs and services.

The library will host its second annual “Putt ‘Fore' the Library” later this month.

“We've been working on it since late summer when we set the date,” said organizer Alice Ainsworth of Penn Township.

Holes are sponsored by local businesses and individuals.

“The gentleman who owns (the golf equipment) comes in and in a couple hours, he has it set up,” Ainsworth said. “Then the folks who are sponsoring the holes can come in and decorate them.”

March 23 will be a 21-and-over “19th Hole Par-Tee” night from 7 to 10 p.m. The cost is $20. Food will be provided by Dom's Pizzeria and the Adorabulls will provide live music. Tickets must be purchased in advance at the library.

March 24 will be “Family Fun Day” from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., where golfing will be available to children and adults of all ages. Food from Dom's will also be available. The cost is $5 for adults, $3 for children ages 5 to 12 and free for children 4 and under. Those tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door.

The event also includes a silent auction in the library's multi-purpose room.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
