Cow Pasture golf tourney on Saturday

Staff Reports

Fun is strictly the name of the game at the 16th annual Cow Pasture Golf Tournament being hosted by the Antelope Valley Lions Club on Saturday near Coleville.

Play on two courses is set for a 10 a.m. shotgun start at the “Baldo Giorgi Country Club” located on Topaz Lane just off Highway 395 (seven miles south of Topaz Lake). Registration opens at 9 a.m.

Irons only are allowed — “Trust me, you don’t want to use a putter,” tournament spokesman Dave Murray said — on a course set up on a cow pasture. Winners are chosen by a blind draw for the nine-hole tournament.

“It’s strictly a day to socialize and have fun,” Murray said. “We have people who only play golf one day a year, and that’s at Cow Pasture because of the fun we have.”

Cost for golfers is $30. Lunch only tickets are $15. Prizes are awarded to the top three teams.

The Lions Club will provide barbecue ribs after the tournament.

Proceeds go to the Antelope Valley Lions Club Scholarship fund that benefits Coleville High School graduates in memory of longtime coach and athletic director Jackie Georgi.
