KINGMAN - There won't be any gloom or doom at the upcoming golf tournament in honor of murder victim Holly Mack.

The Fifth Annual Nite Lite Golf Tournament, which helps support the Kingman High School Girls' Golf Team, will focus on the positive attributes of the 26-year-old former Mohave County Probation officer. And just like Mack, it will be full of fun, energy and passion, said Mickey Harris, who is Mack's mother.

"The golf balls and lettering on the T-shirts will glow in the dark," said Harris. "The players will tee off after sunset. It's just going to be a fun, crazy, giggly event. Holly was so much fun and was always good at planning things. She loved golf. This is a tribute to her personality and all that she was and cared about."

The golf tournament will take place Friday at Cerbat Cliffs Golf Course, with check-in at 5 p.m. during a taco buffet. Four-player scramble teams will shotgun at sunset. The $65 entry fee includes green fees and cart, the buffet, prizes, raffles and games. The event, which costs $65 per person, is limited to the first 72 players, and the entry deadline is 5 p.m. Thursday.

Mack, born and raised in Kingman and a Kingman High School graduate, died Aug. 2, 2009, after she was fatally shot by her husband at a friend's house four months after filing for divorce. He shot Mack as she handed their 15-month-old daughter, Bailey, to police officers on the porch who responded to the scene, then killed himself. The uninjured toddler was adopted by Mack's sister and is now 5 years old.

Mack, who played on the first KHS girls' golf team, was named most improved player in high school, said Harris. She went on to earn her bachelor's degree in biology and was only months away from receiving her master's degree in criminal justice when she was killed. Harris said Mack often talked about her golf experience and wanted to do something to assist the high school's struggling sport.

"She often said that when she got her schooling behind her, she was going to do something to help the girls' golf team, such as sponsor them or donate uniforms," said Harris. "It was something she really wanted to do. But then her life took a negative turn and she died. So a group of loving, concerned friends stepped in and started the tournament for her."

Since Mack's death, the event has blossomed and the family has taken it over. In 2011, enough money was raised to sponsor a Kingman girl and further her golfing skills at the high school. And in 2012, the family donated $2,000 to the girls' golf team for tournament fees and other needs.

For more information, including registration, sponsorship or donations of items for raffles and a silent auction, call Harris at (928) 303-9371, Amy Mack at (928) 303-5100 or Cerbat Cliffs Golf Course at (928) 753-6593.
