2014 Homecoming "Bill Bass Open" Golf Tournament
It's Fall. It's Homecoming. It's gorgeous outside and you should be on the golf course. The Homecoming Bill Bass Open Golf Tournament presented by the UL Alumni Association and friends of the UL Golf Team, provides you with that opportunity as well as a chance to gather with friends, Ragin' Cajun alumni and former athletes for an afternoon of fun and good times.
This year, several new features have been added to not only make the tournament a bigger part of Homecoming activities, but also to make the event one of the area's "not-to-be-missed" tournaments. The tournament is making a major push to get former UL athletes involved and playing in the event, so it is a great opportunity to meet some former Cajun greats and renew acquaintances with others.
The tournament is open to everyone up to a MAXIMUM of 60 teams or 240 golfers, and raises funds for the Bill Bass Scholarship Fund and other Alumni Association programs as well as the Ragin' Cajun Golf Team.
In addition to golf, lunch will be served before play and special events are planned on the course during the tournament. And yes, there will be celebrity sightings and a chance for interaction on several holes. Several door prizes will be presented following play and players and fans will have the opportunity to bid on several prestigious silent auction items.
Come and join us! Put together your own four-person team or send in your individual entry and you'll be paired up as part of a group. Better yet, become a sponsor and enjoy a day of golf while letting others know of your support of the Ragin' Cajuns.
FORMAT: The tournament is a four-person scramble with a point system to allow for handicaps. Total team handicaps (all four handicaps added together) will be used in a point system that will determine handicap strokes for each team PRIOR to play.
