Registration ends on Monday for individuals and teams who want to participate in the Johns Creek Police Department's golf tournament supporting Special Olympics Georgia. 

Registration for individuals and teams ends on April 14, and is $125 per person or $500 for a team of four for the annual tournament. 

The tournament, which is part of the agency's annual participation in the non-profit's Law Enforcement Torch Run, will be held on April 21 at St. Ives Country Club in Johns Creek. 

Registration includes green fees and cart, range balls, box lunch, buffet dinner, awards and prizes. 

The torch run raises money to help more than 23,000 Georgians with intellectual disabilities.

"I never get tired of seeing the happiness and sense of achievement on the face of one of these special athletes when they get a medal," said Johns Creek Police Major John Clifton. "Most Special Olympics athletes don't participate in sports like other people so they miss out on a life experience most of us take for granted. People and sponsors participating in the tournament help these athletes have that experience."

The tournament will be an 18-hole, 4-man scramble format. Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third-place teams, Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive and Putting contests.

For more information about playing in the 2014 JCPD Special Olympics Golf Tournament or JCPD's fundraising for Special Olympics Georgia, contact Major Clifton at (678) 474-1580.
