Golf - Chip Shots - Bill Bass Open This Week & Assist Tourney Reset
Dan McDonald, The Advertiser, Nov. 4, 2020
BILL BASS OPEN: The Bill Bass Open, UL’s annual Homecoming golf event that raises funds for the Cajun golf team, is only two days away, and last-second entries are still being accepted for both four-person teams and individuals.
The event was pushed back due to COVID-forced changes in the Cajun football schedule that also meant a shift of Homecoming activities, and is now set for Friday at Les Vieux Chenes. Organizers are stressing that the event is even more important to the UL program this year given financial hardships brought about by the virus and its long-range economic impact.
The tournament, which dates back more than three decades, will again be a four-person scramble and will include the opportunity to meet all members of the UL golf team who will be stationed at selected holes on the course.
Virus protocols will limit this year’s field, but spots remain open and last-minute entries are available by phone at (337) 654-4161 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entry fee remains at $125 for RCAF members and $150 for others, which includes lunch, drinks on the course, range balls, tee gifts and door prizes.
ASSIST TOURNEY RESET: UL’s women’s basketball's Assist Club Open fundraiser tournament will be held Nov. 9 at Le Triomphe. Entries are still being accepted.
The four-person scramble has a $700 per-team entry fee that includes cart and fees, range balls, beverages, Adidas golf apparel and other prizes. Sponsorships from $100 to $4,000 are also available with all proceeds going to the Cajun women’s hoop squad.
Information and entries are available from Assist Club president Jenifer Dendy at (337) 280-2275, director of basketball operations Mary Chris Vogt at (337) 249-5345 or Cajun coach Garry Brodhead at (337) 540-3573.
