The 4th Annual Double Diamond High School Golf Benefit has been set for July 22, 2017. A committee was organized for the purpose of hosting an annual tournament at Lakeside Golf Course in Eastland, Texas. All proceeds benefit the Eastland High School golf teams and the Cisco High School golf teams.
During the 2017 golf season, Cisco’s Tyler Murray advanced to Regionals as a individualist. The Eastland Mavericks had an exceptional year with a trip to state for the second year in a row. The team placed 7th at state. The Eastland Girls’ team made it to Regional tournament but missed a shot at state. Both schools have very talented athletes on their golf team and we are so happy to be able to help them get the equipment/supplies they need to do even bigger and brighter things next year!
The tournament will be a 4-person scramble. Entry forms will be mailed out to approximately 25 local golf courses in hopes to draw a wide variety of participation to Eastland. Entries are $75 per person. Mulligans will be available for $5.00 each, limit two per person. Golf carts are available for rental at the clubhouse. Please call Lakeside Golf Course at 254-629-2892 to sign your team up today!!
A successful tournament presents awards to golfers such as: closest to the pin ($100 for men, $100 for women), longest drive ($100 for men, $100 for women), and most accurate drive ($100 for men, $100 for women). The committee is seeking donations for the other cash prizes. A $100 donation will receive a sign advertising your business to be placed on the appropriate tee box during the tournament. A $500 donation will receive a full team entry into the tournament and a sign on the tee box.
Our proceeds are made from donations from the community and raffle. Proceeds will be used as donations to the Booster Clubs of Cisco and Eastland High Schools in Eastland County and will be designated for the golf teams. With last year’s proceeds, both High School’s golf teams were awarded $1,000 each. We are hoping to at least match that amount for this upcoming golf season.
If you chose to make a donation, make checks payable to Double Diamond HS Golf Benefit account, c/o Leisha Elrod, Committee Chairman, 407 E. Conner, Eastland, TX 76448.
The committee appreciates your time and consideration.
