Flights for Ages 7-18
KETCHUM, IDAHO – The city of Ketchum’s 14th annual Chuck Gates Junior Golf Tournament for ages 7 to 18 will be held on Friday, June 30 at 1 p.m. at the Bigwood Golf Course.
The $15 entry fee includes a barbecue following the tournament. Flights of three, six and nine holes are available. Some golf experience is necessary.
To register please contact John Kearney, city recreation supervisor, at [email protected] or 726-7820 by Wednesday, June 28, at 4 p.m.
Volunteer scorers are always needed, and are asked to contact Kearney directly.
Additional sponsors are the Chuck Gates Youth Endowment, Bigwood Golf Course and Bigwood Bar & Grill.
The foundation also invited top junior golfers to play in the 20th annual Chuck Gates tournament at the Sun Valley Golf Course in early June, which raises money to support youth golf.
The foundation was established in 2002 in honor of the late Chuck Gates, one of the founders of the Idaho Mountain Express. “The endowment has been very beneficial to our program and department for more than 15 years,” Kearney said. “We also thank Roger Roland, President of the Board of Directors of the Chuck Gates Youth Endowment for his work in raising funds for the endowment, and promoting youth golf throughout the valley.”
