Pasture golf tourney tees off

The sixth annual Jackie Giorgi Pasture Golf Tournament will be Saturday, in a cow pasture.

Tee time is as close to 8 a.m. as possible or when they manage to get all the cows off the "golf course." Coffee and sweet rolls will be there to get you off to a good start.

Bring your irons only and your hunting boots. Don't worry about getting lost, they have search and rescue bovine technicians (better known as cowboys). They will bring you back for a lunch of barbecued pork ribs, beans, potato salad, rolls and dessert.

This is known as an official P.G.A. event (Pasture Golf Abnormal). This event is sponsored by the Antelope Valley Lion's Club. The cost is $25 per person for a day of golf and barbecue or if you just want to join in and only have lunch, it's $12.

All proceeds go directly to the Jackie Giorgi Scholarship Fund for Coleville High School graduates. There will also be many raffle prizes drawn. Raffle tickets are $1 each.

Make up your own foursome or they will team you up with some local pros. Winning teams will be decided by blind draw, so stacking your team won't do you any good. Winners of the event will receive a custom T-shirt personalized with your name embroidered by Judy Baxter at Crafty Needle in Walker.

Reservations should be made as soon as possible. To sign up for the event, call John Daniels at (760) 932-7023; Don Penfield (530) 495-2694; Clint Hershey (530) 495-2935, Lee Sims (530) 495-2488 or any Antelope Valley Lions Club member.
