 The Anderson County High School girls' golf team will be the Fifth Annual "The Joy of Golf" Tournament on Saturday, Aug. 17.

Since 2009 this tournament, which is held for high school girls, has been hosted by the team and a group of local lady golf advocates. The vision for The Joy of Golf Tournament began over a conversation between golf enthusiasts from Lawrenceburg who simply wanted to promote the love of the game to girls, not only in Anderson County, but the surrounding areas. The tournament was named in honor of the late Joy Mountjoy who had a tremendous impact on women’s golf in Anderson County. Last year Anderson County High School golfer Kaitlyn Riley was the Individual Winner for the 2012 tournament. 

The Lady Bearcat golfers will host this tournament, which has quickly become a popular early-season event, as their signature fund-raising event. The tournament organizers expect draw a field of some of the state's better girls' high school teams and have received team commitments Mercer, Franklin, Shelby, Boyle, Woodford, Taylor and Henry counties. Several Lexington schools will also be contending.

Anyone interested in supporting the event as a hole sponsor or t-shirt sponsor can drop off or mail donations, made payable to ACHS Lady Cat Golf, to head coach Todd Hyatt at 1260 ByPass South, Lawrenceburg, KY 40342. Potential sponsors may also contact Mike Riley at 502-680-1881 to arrange for a donation to be picked up by a golfer or golf parent.  

Donations must be received by Aug. 5 in order for a name and/or business logo to be listed on the tournament t-shirts, signs and banner that will be displayed at the golf course for the entire season.
