AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - People in Americus played golf Friday to support the city fire department. 

For the 20th year in a row, the department hosted their fundraising tournament at the Griffin Bell Golf Course.

16 foursomes teed off Friday afternoon in the scramble.

Their money helps the fire department's community efforts.

"We use the money for helping about 10 families at Christmas time, and it helps our prevention program. It's a good purpose. Like I said, this is our 20th year, and we'll be right back here next year," said Fire Chief Allen Erkhart.
