Chipping In For The Cause!
It is time again to “chip in for the cause” and join in on the fun at the 12th Annual Siuslaw Open to benefit Siuslaw Outreach Services! The Siuslaw Open presented by Oregon Pacific Bank, Florence Dental Clinic, Peace Harbor Hospital, Abel Insurance and Florence Elks Lodge #1858, is one of the premier golfing events in Florence. The tournament was scheduled for Saturday, May 14th, at beautiful Florence Golf Links. The “crummy” weather forced the tournament to be rescheduled for Saturday, September 10th. Florence Golf Links features wide-open Scottish style fairways along with breathtaking views of the dunes and ocean. The tournament will again feature its signature putting contest where someone could win a chance to putt for $5,000. The fun and exciting Chipping Contest and Poker Run are back as well. The tournament has returned to a shotgun start format. Johnston Motors has once again stepped up to sponsor a hole-in-one contest to win a new Ford truck! Hyak has also returned to provide a lunch on hole #7. New this year is The Best Dressed Team Contest. The tournament is a four-person team format using the Calloway scoring method. Team fees include green fees, carts, 3 putts in the putting contest, drinks, coffee, donuts, snacks, and lunch. There are still spots for a few teams to sign up.
