It's that time of the year again, time for the 12th annual Jackie Giorgi Cow Pasture Golf Tournament and a chance to play the most unusual golf course in America. Registration begins 9 a.m. April 7 at the Baldo Giorgi "cow pasture" Country Club on Topaz Lane in the Antelope Valley. Tee of will be at 10 a.m.
The Antelope Valley Lions Club of the Walker, Topaz and Coleville area organized this event as a fundraiser, with all proceeds going to the Jackie Giorgi Scholarship Fund to aid outstanding students from Coleville High School.
Start the day with a game of golf, skillfully dodging the "steaming divots" as you complete the course. Beer, water and sodas will be delivered to you on the course. Then sit down to a lunch of barbecued ribs, beans, potato salad, dessert and drinks for $30 or lunch only for $15. There will also be raffle prizes to win.
Bring your friends and create your own foursome, or you can be placed in another group that needs a partner. Irons only are allowed. Tees and balls will be furnished, as you are going to need a few. Dust off those irons and come out and play our challenging golf course. You will not only be able to get in a lot of practice on your short game, but also a lot of time working in the rough. Experienced crews of cows and horses have manicured our course all winter long. The designated P.G.A. (pasture golf alternative) course is located on the Baldo Giorgi Ranch. Take Highway 395 south from Topaz Lake approximately seven miles, or north from Walker approximately seven miles, and turn left/right on Topaz Lane. Follow the signs or the crowd to Baldo Giorgi "cow pasture" Country Club.
We guarantee you will have a good time. We wouldn't "steer" you wrong, and that's no "bull."
