BILL BASS OPEN: All area courses now have entry brochures and other locations will soon have the same information for the Bill Bass Open, UL’s annual Homecoming tournament that serves as a fundraiser for the Ragin’ Cajun golf team and the Bill Bass Endowed Scholarship. The tournament is Friday, Oct. 31, one day before UL’s Nov. 1 Homecoming game against South Alabama.

The tournament is once again at Les Vieux Chenes and will have 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. shotgun starts to allow all golfers and Cajun fans the opportunity to participate. Handicaps will again be used to allow an equal opportunity for all teams. Approximately 40 four-person scramble teams took part in last year’s tournament and another large field is expected for this year.

Entry fee is again $125 for individuals or $500 for teams, and players may make up their own four-person teams. In addition to the entry forms, online entries will also be available in the near future and players may pay online with a credit card. More information about the Bill Bass Open is available at 857-8754.

 ACES: It was a long time coming for friend of the column Gene Brackin, who’s been playing golf for over 30 years. On Friday, Brackin used a gap wedge to hole out on the 109-yard 17th hole at Les Vieux Chenes for his first-ever hole-in-one, playing in a group with Kenny Chitty, Dan LaPointe and Albert Broussard.
