Local Golf Professionals and amateur players came out in support of the Ricki Rarick Junior Golf program at The Stone Canyon Club in the 8th Annual “Swinging for Juniors” tournament fundraiser. “It was a great success in helping raise money for the program. Thanks to all players, sponsors and especially The Stone Canyon Club for hosting the event” says Mike Hayes, President of the Association.
Funds raised will go a long way in supporting the Junior Program in keeping the cost minimal for the parents and kids. It currently costs only $20.00 a year for membership. The Junior tournament events are generally 36 holes every week during the summer and cost $10.00 per event. If you want more information about the program, please go to www.tucsonjuniorgolf.com.
It appears that the local course knowledge and the playing ability of the home course professional gave the team of Mike Russell, Head Golf Professional at The Stone Canyon Club the edge to win the tournament with his amateur partners Steve Tooker, Paul Mickelburg and Kevin Madden. The format consisted of four players playing a one best ball gross competition.
