Cow pasture golf a success


You couldn't have had more fun than the 67 golfers and 20 more lunch guests had at the Antelope Valley Lions annual Cow Pasture Golf Tournament on April 1. This was the sixth year for this event and it is growing every year. The first four years, the event was only a nine-hole course, but with more and more golfers every year, it has expanded to 18 holes, with nine holes on the front pasture and nine holes in the "back 40."

After the golfers completed nine holes of challenging golf, they were all treated to a barbecue of chicken and ribs with all the trimmings. Then several raffle prizes were given out along with awards to the winners determined by a blind draw. A wonderful T-shirt was also sold, imprinted with a golfer being harassed by a snorting bull along with the caption of "I survived the cow pasture golf game."

Thanks go to the Carson Valley Country Club, Carson Valley Inn and Topaz Lodge and Casino for the main prizes.

The hard work of the Antelope Valley Lions Club raised enough money, over $1,500, to continue the Jackie Giorgi Scholarship Fund that is awarded to deserving students from Coleville High School.

I personally want to thank all the people who supported the event and came from as far away as Anaheim, Calif., Henderson and Bishop, Calif., as well as other far away places. Everybody that I have talked to has told me they are coming back next year and are bringing friends. So mark your calendars for the first Saturday of April 2007 and plan to attend this fun event. I guarantee you will have a good time ... and that's no bull.
