Cow Pasture Golf to be held on Saturday

Rescheduled from last weekend, the Antelope Valley Lions Club’s 18th annual Cow Pasture Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday.

The tournament was rescheduled due to the threat of winter weather.

Registration will start at 9 a.m., followed by the tournament at the “Baldo Giorgi Country Club,” 1318 Topaz Lane, seven miles south of Topaz Lake.

Blind draw teams play nine holes of golf in a cow pasture. A 10 a.m. shotgun start is scheduled.

You don’t even need to know how to golf, tournament organizers said, adding that players are only allowed to use irons.

The cost is $30 per player and includes the barbecue ribs lunch after the tournament. The cost is $15 for lunch.

Funds raised go toward the Antelope Valley Lions Club Scholarship Fund that benefits Coleville High graduates in memory of Jackie Georgi, a longtime teacher, administrator and coach at the school.
