Pricing for the event is $150 per golfer and includes a cart, dinner buffet and a gift bag. Residents who don’t want to golf, but want to support the department, can purchase a dinner only option for $50.

Singles, twosomes and threesomes will be paired with others.

Melrose Police are also looking for tee and green sponsors, which are $100 each.
