A special guest appearance by Superior Court Judge Dave Larson will be held at Hole 1 as he Tee Off the tournament at 3:00 p.m.  Surprise celebrity appearances are also expected at this memorable event.  If you don’t play golf, feel free to join us on the patio at the BBQ Awards dinner for just $25.
