Helicopter Golf Ball Drop

Ball-DropThe Starburst Junior Golf Classic will kick off the tournament on Sunday, June 11 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 1,300 golf balls from the sky! And new this year, ANYONE can purchase a raffle ticket for the Helicopter Ball Drop!
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. And thanks to our ball drop sponsor, H-E-B, the ball that falls in (or closest) to the golf hole will win $2,000! 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) now through June 9. Tickets can also be purchased at Cottonwood Creek Golf Course on Sunday, June 11 when players sign-in for the tournament before the Helicopter Golf Ball Drop at 7 p.m.

The Starburst Junior Golf Classic is my favorite tournament of the year. The fun events, volunteers, setup and having a caddie is amazing. This was my first year and now it's going be an annual event!
