Golf: Chip Shots - Chicken and Bass Golf Tournaments Coming Up

‘Chicken’ Tournament

The second Jimmy “Chicken” Thomas Classic, washed out by Hurricane Harvey, has been rescheduled for Sunday-Monday, Nov. 12-13, at Oakbourne.


The event raises funds for the UL golf team and is one of the major events staged by the Vermilion Links Club, the official support group for Cajun golf. The tournament includes a “meet and greet” with the team on Sunday, Nov. 12, at 6:30 p.m. at Oakbourne, with the two-man scramble set for a 1 p.m. shotgun start on Monday, Nov. 13.


The tournament and accompanying events are open to any golfer who wants to get involved with the UL program and/or the Vermilion Links. Entry for the tournament is complimentary for Links founding members, and spots are also available with a $200 per-player or a $400 per-team entry fee.


More information is available from David Church at 280-2961 or dchurch@dartenergyservices.com, or from UL coach Theo Sliman at 962-3348 or tsliman@louisiana.edu. Players who had previously entered before the rainout are asked to contact Church to reconfirm their entries for the new date.

Bill Bass Open It is not long until the Bill Bass Open, the athletic department’s annual Homecoming golf tournament that helps raise funds for the Cajun golf team.


The four-person scramble tournament is set for Friday, Nov. 17, with a noon shotgun start at Les Vieux Chenes. The tournament has featured both morning and afternoon flights in the past few years, but with this year’s Homecoming celebration coming after the end of daylight savings time, only one flight will be staged.


The tournament is open to all golfers and will include lunch before play and awards following the event, as well as an assortment of souvenir tee gifts. Entry fee is $150 per player, with members of the RCAF and the Vermilion Links getting a $25 discount on entry fees.


Entry forms will soon be available at all local courses and golf retailers, and will be mailed to all players who have taken part in the tournament over the past three years. Entries and more information will also be available online at ragincajuns.com in the near future, but information is available now by calling (337) 857-8754.
