On April 20 the Lopez Golf Club will be hosting an Open Golf Tournament to raise money for junior golf programs. All profits from the event will help support the Lopez High School Golf Program, provide free golf clinics for kids with a pro golfer and seed a new program for younger golfers.

The event is an 18-hole mixed scramble followed by lunch and prizes.

The entry fee for adults is $40.  To sign up to play, contact Joyce Kruithof at 468-4992 or at You don’t need an established handicap to play. Teams will be created for you at the event.

If you can’t play there are ways to support our efforts. Sponsorship is available at $100 a hole.  Your name or the name of your business with logo will be displayed on a large sign at one of the 18 holes.  Consider sharing a hole with a friend or another business if you’d like. We would also like donations of items, services or money for prizes and raffles. To contribute in any of these ways, contact Rita O’Boyle at 468-2813 or email her at
