Merrill Laurentz gave the inspiration to celebrate spring. After the devastation of the flood you can see the hope for restoration in the bluebonnets.
Deb Bennet and Pat Hatch explained the way teams would be playing in the tournament. It is a par three scramble and no handicap needed. If you don’t have a team, let them know and they can place you. There will also be a putting contest. This is a fun and low pressure tournament and will go faster because it is only par three and a scramble. The committee still needs volunteers for the longest putt, registration and putting contest.
Thanks to Mary Kay Otto for the beautiful brochures she designed.
