Here’s a raffle with a big-time prize: the Philadelphia Publinks Golf Association is holding a $10 raffle to benefit its Scholarship Program, and the winner gets a threesome at Merion Golf Club (the 4th will be the member host) in 2013. That means you’d be playing it under US Open conditions, narrow fairways and all. You can grab a link for more information here at TeeItUpPhilly.com.
