Fifth annual Veterans for Veterans Golf Tournament set for May 26


By Ken Rogers
Special to The SUN
Veterans for Veterans of Archuleta County is proud to announce its fifth-annual golf tournament scheduled to take place on May 26 at the Pagosa Springs Golf Course.
We have slots available, so get your teams together and enter. The cost is $70 per player which includes green fee, golf cart and lunch at the end of the tournament. Plan on paying with cash or check (sorry, no credit cards) on the day of the event. Please make all checks payable to “Veterans for Veterans.” There will be some great prizes, lots of fun and you will be helping our local veterans.
The golf tournament players will start arriving at 8 a.m. for cart and tee box assignments. Play will begin at 9 a.m. in a shotgun start. This will be a best-ball scramble format tournament using three blind holes for scoring. Mulligans will be available for purchase before the 9 a.m. tee-off time, but will be limited to two mulligans per player. The mulligan tickets will also be the tickets for our numerous door prizes. The door-prize drawing will be held after play has been completed. The top four teams at the end of play will be awarded prizes. There will also be prizes for the longest drive and closest to the pin for both men and women contestants.
We would like to thank all the generous sponsors from Pagosa Springs and the surrounding area for their overwhelming support. Without them, we could not provide this fundraising event to help the many veterans within our county and the Four Corners area. Contacts for this event are Kenny Rogers at (303) 902-5340 and Chuck Jordan at 759-6444.
