LocalGolfer.com takes part in tournament to benefit high school basket ball program.
North Medford High School in Southern Oregon put on a golf tournament to benefit the North Medford basket ball teams. Proceeds went toboth boys’ and girls’ programs. The tournament was held at Centennial Golf Club, a John Fought design. Rated by LocalGolfer.com as one of the “Top 10 Golf Courses in Oregon,” teams came from all of Southern Oregon to compete in the event. And, it’s all for a good cause.
Local boosters of North Medford High School’s basket ball program and the community turned out en masse to support the boy’s and girl’s basketball programs. The tournament was a huge success. Golfers didn’t let a torrential down pour get in the way of playing, either. “At one point the rain was going sideways,” says Dave Rush, member of the team sponsored by LocalGolfer.com. The forecast was for clouds and rain possible, and in the beginning before the tournament, there was sun and a beautiful rainbow to inaugurate the players. “To my knowledge,” says Head Coach, Tim Karrick, “only three teams dropped out of the tournament because of the weather. That’s a testament to the dedication and grit that exemplifies all Medford High School athletes.”
The goal of the tournament was to raise funds for scholarships and travel expenses to summer basketball tournaments. “Our teams will definitely benefit from the experiences gained by traveling outside the Rogue Valley to play upper level teams,” says Karrick. “We were pleased with the turnout of golfers who came to compete with some of the top golfers in the valley and to support the programs. We really appreciate all the sponsors as well. Hopefully, next year we’ll have a little better weather,” he added with a grin.
“The LocalGolfer.com team placed 4th Gross in the tournament,” stated Brian Edwards of the LG Team. “Our team is well rounded, and we look forward to participating in tournaments that are good for the community and help fund worthy causes like the North Medford basketball teams.”
Vince Domenzain, General Manager of Centennial Golf Club, said, “It’s nice to be able to provide a venue to help the local sports programs in the valley. Helping out the students is especially rewarding because they are our future, and that’s a good investment.”
