Rotary Club to hold golf tournament
By Tom Dodge
The sixth annual Eunice Rotary Club Golf Tournament will be held Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 11-12 at the Eunice Country Club.
“This is one of our best fundraisers,” director Darren D’Aubin said of the tournament.
“All the money will stay in town,” D’Aubin said. “We have given money to the schools and the LSUE athletic department, Relay For Life and a bunch of other things we have supported from the tournament.”
The tournament is a two-man scramble with a shot-gun start set for 8:30 a.m. tee time.
“We have people from all over the state who come to play in the tournament,” D’Aubin said.
The fee is $100 per person and $200 per two person team. The fee includes the Saturday night social for the player and a guest. The social is set for 6 - 9 p.m.
“It is a two-day tournament,” D’Aubin said. “Because of the LSU-Florida football game, we will have a big tailgate party Saturday and watch the game on a big-screen TV.”
There is a maximum of 27 teams with three flights set by handicaps and previous scores.
Players must be at least 18 to participate.
Flights will be posted at the club house on Oct. 10.
“This tournament has all level of golfers,” D’Aubin said.
“We have some that have never played before or those who only play for our tournament.
“We put all the same levels together,” he explained. “So it is basically everybody having a good time.”
The prizes are $300 for the first-place team, $200 for second place and $100 awarded to the third-place team.
There will also be prizes for low round non winner, closest to the hole on 4 and 13 as well as pin games on 6 and 15.
“We would like everyone to sign up by the Friday morning befor the tournament so we can get all the flighting done,” he said.
D’Aubin said they are also working to put on a benefit tennis tournament.
