Helicopter Golf Ball Drop

The Starburst Junior Golf Classic will kick off the tournament on Sunday, June 10 at Cottonwood Creek Golf Course, where players can swap stories, enjoy dinner, check out some cool swag and watch the popular Helicopter Ball Drop as up to 1,300 golf balls from the sky! ANYONE can purchase a raffle ticket for the Helicopter Ball Drop on Sunday during player registration!

Not sure how the Helicopter Ball Drop works? Up to 1,300 raffle tickets will be sold for $5 each. One ticket represents a golf ball that will be dropped out of a helicopter. The ball that falls in (or closest) to the golf hole will win $1,000! You do not need to be present to win.

Raffle tickets can be purchased at the Greater Waco Chamber building (101 S. Third Street, Waco, TX 76701) beginning May 15 through June 8. Tickets can also be purchased at Cottonwood Creek Golf Course on Sunday, June 10 when players sign-in for the tournament before the Helicopter Golf Ball Drop.

It was fun to see the boys interact with other players from across the region. Loved the chip and putt course at Cottonwood as it provided the boys a safe place to compete and make new friends.
