Pirate Golf Tournament set for June 2

PORT ANGELES - The annual Pirate Golf Tournament, a fund raiser for athletic scholarships, is set for a 9 a.m. shotgun start on June 2 at Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course.

The 2017 tournament nearly sold out and organizer Mitch Freeman, Peninsula College men's basketball coach, is working hard in hopes of a full field for 2018.

"This is not only a fund raiser for scholarships, but it's a fun end-of-year celebration of Pirate Athletics," said Rick Ross, Associate Dean for Athletics and Student Life. "Coach Freeman and a group of Pirate athletic volunteers put on a great tournament every year and Jerry Allen of 7 Cedars Casino, and Bill Shea and Garrett Smithson of the Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course take very good care of us. Golfers of all abilities can come out and have a great time."

The tournamnent fee is $100 per player, and the golf committee welcomes business leaders to put teams together and get their corporate Tee Sign at one of the 18 holes.

Prizes will go to first and second place in the men's division and first place in the women's division, as well as hole-in-one prizes on par 3 holes sponsored by Wilder Auto Center, KP prizes on select par 3 holes, long drive, as well as two special holes featuring soccer and basketball stations, staffed by Pirate student athletes.

The event will include 18 holes of golf with cart, appetizers and drinks, a tee prize, lunch, and a chance to win prizes, cash and more!
