The Sixth is coming

Connie Dreyer

The sixth annual SunBird Open Golf Tournament is planned for Wednesday, December 2. It will be a Scramble four person format. So golfers – get your teams together and note the team names on the score cards, collect $40 per person and sign up in the Pro Shop beginning November 1. The first 36 teams will be guaranteed a spot for play.

Check-in will be at 8:00 a.m. in the ballroom with coffee and donuts; tee-time at 9:00 a.m. and lunch will follow. Gross and Net team winners will bring home the bacon (prize monies).

The committee members: Gary Metzger, Jim Dolwick, Jack Cooper, George Richardson, Connie Dreyer and Eileen Stroahman are planning a fun day for all with lots of door prizes as well as prizes for the usual KP’s and longest putts. Perhaps we might also have a hole-in-one on the course that day.

And please remember to support our sponsors whose generosity helped the last five Sunbird Opens make $37,734 for our great golf course. Let’s add to that total for the sixth. Like the SunBird Open, many of the tournaments played at SunBird use their proceeds for golf course projects.
