golf3 300HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (7/24/14) — The VFW Eagles 2014 Golf Scramble will be held at Western Hills Golf Club Saturday, Aug. 16.

The entry fee for the VFW's golf scramble is $65 and includes lunch and a mulligan.

A shotgun start of 8 a.m. has been set for the scramble. The scramble is limited to the first 144 paid entrants.

Western Hills Golf Course is well-known for its large greens. Golf Digest rated the course as the eighth "Best Public Course" in the state for 1996.

Sand bunkers have been incorporated throughout the entire design and water hazards come into play on 10 holes. The signature hole at the Hopkinsville course is No. 16, a 220-yard, par 3, requiring a tee shot from off a hillside tee box and down to a green fronted by a pond. Also, the course takes a unique approach in positioning its ladies' tee box.

It is set up short with the second shot being in the area of the men's second shot.
