No one is sure where Justin Turner will be playing in 2017, but that won’t affect his second annual golf tournament.

Turner announced via Twitter his Justin Turner Golf Classic will be held at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif. on Monday, Jan. 30 at 11 a.m. Each team of four will include a Dodger player or celebrity, according to dreamcenterconference.com. Single entry costs $2,000, and foursome entries cost $5,000. The registration deadline is Jan. 23, 2017. All proceeds will go to The Dream Center’s Veterans Program.

Despite the looming possibility he’s playing elsewhere next season, Turner is a native of Southern California and appears dedicated to keeping a presence in the area. Turner has spent the last three seasons with the Dodgers. In his most recent campaign, he developed into a middle-of-the-order threat. Turner is said to be seeking a five-year contract.
