RAY BROOK — To celebrate its 100-year anniversary, the Saranac Lake Golf Club will have a full day of festivities Saturday.

The public is invited to the open house from noon to 5 p.m. There will be free golf for non-members, a reduced one-day-only 2020 new member rate, complimentary food, a free putting contest, a free pitching contest and a free golf “horse race” that involves two-person teams and an alternate shot team elimination format, played out over two holes. Spectators can bet on their top three teams to win, place or show.

There will also be a ball drop game of chance. Each chance costs $5. The person closest to the hole or in it wins.

The festivities will also include a nine-hole member tournament.

To register, teams must contact Tony Barnes at the Saranac Lake Golf Club at 518-891-2675. For more information, go to the golf course’s Facebook page.
