Sign Up for the Guy Davis Golf Tourney at Crown Colony in Lufkin
Saturday, August 20, the 15th Annual Guy Davis Golf Tournament is coming to Crown Colony Country Club in Lufkin. Hosted by the Roadrunner Foundation, the tournament generates funds for Angelina College Athletics programs. Funds raised help AC teams with various expenses such as travel and equipment in order to keep the various programs competing for conference and national titles.
This tournament has grown every year and there are still a few openings for players, teams and sponsors, but those openings won’t last for long. Tournament organizers currently are seeking teams and hole sponsors for the five-man scramble format, scheduled for shotgun starts of 8 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. There will be hole games and prizes awarded for such milestones as closest-to-the-pin and holes in one, among others.
A Pre-Tournament Kickoff Dinner is set for 6 p.m. on Friday, August 19, also at Crown Colony, with a silent auction featuring various sports collectibles and other valuable items.
Roadrunner Foundation president Wes Welch said the tourney’s reputation has spread throughout Texas and other states.
“The tournament year this year will follow the same format (five-man scramble), and we hope to have 25 teams in the morning and 25 in the afternoon,” Welch said. “We’re expecting another full turnout, and they’re coming from all around the country to join us here. Word is out, and we’re looking forward to another fun-filled day and catching up with some old friends.”
Sponsorship opportunities are still available. Current sponsors for this year’s event include presenting sponsor Southside Bank (fifth consecutive year as presenting sponsor), Lee Transervices, Strata Roofing and Construction, Dedicated Orthopedic Center of East Texas, Bancorp South, Integra Insurance Services, Loving Auto Group, East Texas Asphalt Company, Pilgrim’s, Ramblin’ Ranches Yeary Real Estate, Goodwin Lasiter Strong, Lufkin Coca-Cola, American State Bank, Chala Sports Chiropractic, Contractor’s Supplies, Inc., Moore Brothers Construction Company, RBC Wealth Management, Renfro’s Smoked Sausages, Carroway Funeral Home, Security & Guaranty Abstract Company, East Texas Power Sports and Lufkin Printing Company.
