It is finally spring and time for the much-anticipated annual Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce and Spanish Fork Rotary Scholarship Golf Tournament.
This year the tournament will start with registration at 8:30 a.m. on April 26 at the Spanish Oaks Golf Course. This will be followed by contests and a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m. Lunch and awards will follow the tournament. Each foursome will receive a picture of their group.
The members of the chamber of commerce and Rotary have been literally planning for this tournament for months. They have been encouraging Spanish Fork City to completely remodel the golf course clubhouse so that it will be big enough to host the many golfers for the fun after-tournament lunch.
The luncheon is always filled with golfing stories, jokes and the one about the “incredible hit (or miss) from last year.” Also at the lunch are opportunity-drawing prizes and placement prizes for the contest winners.
But the real winners of the tournament will be the students from local high schools who will be eligible for the scholarship money raised by the tournament. Citizens and local businesses have donated money, products and services toward the scholarships that will be awarded at the end of the school year.
Last year’s tournament raised enough money to provide 23 scholarships of $1,500 each.
