The 15th annual Education Foundation Golf Tournament is slated for Saturday, June 15. The 18-hole four person scramble will begin at 9 a.m. Cost is $50 per person and lunch is provided.
Foundation board member Loren Huse said the golf tournament is one of the top events for the foundation each year.
“The golf tournament is one of our major fundraisers of the year. It gives us enough to fully pay for our Heritage Banquet and usually a little left over to fund other activities,” said Huse.
Huse said the tournament is a strong indicator of the community’s commitment to celebrating education.
“It appears everyone in this area feels education is very important. This is why we have had such amazing support for the foundation and the tournament,” said Huse.
Huse also said the tournament is a point of pride for organizers.
“It is one of the best attended tournaments of the year in American Falls, and we are often told it is one of the most enjoyable for golfers to play in. This is a premier event for our community and it is our pleasure to put it on each year,” said Huse.
The tournament features sponsors on many levels. Companies and individuals each year sponsor holes, provide prizes and food. Lamb Weston is a perennial sponsor. Huse said the food is almost as big of an attraction as the golfing.
“Each year Lamb Weston provides us with French fries and some of their other products. I know there are a lot of people who come just to eat those potato and jalapeno products Lamb Weston makes, they are delicious,” said Huse.
The tournament will once again feature a hole-in-one prize. The lucky golfer that aces a hole will win a golf cart.
