Rivers Course Landing

Memorial Golf Tournament

The well-known Hazelton Tournament, in honor of our friend Mike Hazelton ’81, inspires many classmates to gather in one place to remember and celebrate each year. What better way to honor all the 80s classmates who are no longer with us than to continue the tradition of a fun-filled golf tournament to bring us together? Proceeds will make the block party event possible.

  • Scramble/best ball tournament with a two-shotgun start at 8 am and 1 pm
  • $320 /team of four includes tournament fee, 18 holes, greens fees, cart, hot dog snack, prizes and hole-in-one contest participation
  • Prizes and scores announced at the Block Party

HOLE-IN-ONE WINS $50,000 courtesy of Frenchie’s Ford and Frenchie’s Chevrolet!

Good luck, golfers, and may the odds be ever in your favor.
