Want to win $1 million? Your chance is coming to Hastings

Over the weekend of July 24-26, the Hastings Country Club will be playing host to the Minnesota State Open. One of the main draws for Hastings residents will be the chance to win $1 million in a hole-in-one contest.

So, do you want to win $1 million? Here's what you'll have to do:

Starting Friday and Saturday at 2:30 p.m., and continuing Sunday, qualifying will be held for the $1 Million Shootout. Anyone can come take their shot at qualifying. It is open to the public.

Players will take their best shot at a 150-yard hole set up on the driving range at the country club. Over the three days, the four players who get closest to the pin will qualify for a chance to win $1 million.

The cost to enter is $5 for two shots, or $20 for eight shots.

On Sunday evening, the four qualifiers and two members of the Hastings Country Club will head over to the ninth hole, a 150-yard par 3.

Each player will get one shot. Should one of them sink a hole-in-one, they win $1 million.

The money raised will be donated to Hastings Family Service.

"I think it's a good idea, and I hope we can raise some money," country club golf pro Brad Schmierer said.
