In spite of what you may have seen the past two weeks in the Bangor Daily News, the Old Town Animal Orphanage golf tournament is on Saturday, July 7th, starting at 8 a.m. The advertisements in the paper have the tournament as being on Sunday, July 8th, and is incorrect.
Just so everyone is clear: The Animal Orphanage Tournament is Saturday, July 7th, 8 a.m. shot gun start. On Sunday, July 8th, the golf course is open for normal play.
Apologies for any confusion that this may have caused.
Wow! We had 1.5 inches of rain on Thursday. But we sure needed it. The course took it well, and there are no restrictions on carts. Looks like it’s going to be a beautiful day for golf!

The Old Town Animal Orphanage does a lot of great things and is an important, vital part of our community. It is a non-profit no-kill rescue shelter located in Old Town, ME.
Incorporated in 1990 by a group of caring and compassionate citizens, The Old Town Animal Orphanage is dedicated to the welfare of homeless animals and serves the communities of Old Town, Veazie and Orono. It is operated with minimal funds received from the town governments, annual fundraising events and from the generosity of private citizens. The Animal Orphanage does not receive state or federal funding and operates with four paid employees and many dedicated volunteers.
This tournament is its biggest fundraiser of the year. Please consider setting time aside to play in this great event.
We’ve had close to 1 inch of rain since yesterday, and it’s still raining. If the rain lets up this morning, which it is supposed to, we’ll be fine for carts for the Monday Night Scramble. We will post another update by noon today.
