Galatea golf tournament is Sept. 13
The Krewe of Galatea will be sponsoring its fifth annual golf tournament Sept. 13th, at The Atchafalaya at Idlewild near Patterson.
The format will be an 18-hole scramble comprised of 30, three-man teams. Each team will be paired with another team during tournament play. Tee time is at 1 p.m.
“The most popular type of scramble seems to be the format where two teams must play together during competition,” Tournament Chairman Bill Marin said. “Also, tournaments that don’t fill up the course with teams are also popular because the course is not crowded and play is completed in a reasonable amount of time. The krewe is using this tournament as a fundraiser, but most importantly, we want the whole event format to be an enjoyable outing, not only for the golfers who compete, but also for the krewe members who host the tournament day. Also, this year we have a major corporate sponsor, Ocean Marine Contractors, and the krewe is very appreciative of this support by Tommy & Donna Cheramie. Other special recognition goes out to the sponsors of our food/beverage tents.”
The sponsors of the food/beverage tents are The Dohmanns (AJ, Randy and Joey), Cannata’s (Steve Domangue), Kyle Machine, Adams & Johnson CPA and Bob Opperman, Keith Langley and Charlie Solar.
The field of teams will be flighted into three flights (if the full field of 30 teams is entered) consisting of championship, 1st and 2nd flights.
The top three teams from each flight will be awarded prizes, while long-drive and closest-to-the-hole winners also will be honored.
“We still have openings for few teams,” Marin said. “Mid-September should give us a chance of having an early fall day for golf, and I know the ladies of Galatea will be at the course to join in on this fun outing. The entry form should be in today’s Daily Review or interested team sponsors can contact me at 395-8112,” Marin said.
