A strong turnout and sunny skies made for a competitive and entertaining afternoon on the links at Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity’s 13th annual golf tournament, held at Northwestern Hills Golf Course in Natchitoches, Louisiana.
On Saturday, March 23, 2019, teams of golfers, made up of alumni of the Beta Omicron Chapter at Northwestern State University, family and friends of the fraternity, and community members hit the links in cool, comfortable weather at Northwestern Hills Golf Course.
Golfers, both competitive and casual, teed off around 1:00 p.m. for Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity’s annual Golf Tournament in Natchitoches, Louisiana.
Two-player amateur teams competed for cash prizes, handed out in an awards ceremony in the clubhouse. First place went to the duo of Steven Carrier and Jeff M.; Matt R. landed the “closest to the pin” contest, while the longest drive went to Monte Robinson.
The tournament’s ‘fun’ format, a scramble featuring gimmick holes such as speed putt, girls putt, and pick-a-club, remains popular among players, according to tournament coordinator Joseph Magnan.
The tournament is expected to return next Spring for its 14th year. Information on dates and registration will be announced in January 2020.
The annual tournament wouldn’t have been possible without the continued support of individuals and area businesses. Tournament sponsors included:
- Posey’s Sports Center
- Maggio’s Package Liquor
- Northwestern State University’s Department of Hospitality Management and Tourism
- Beta Omicron Chapter alumnus Alan Pasch
- Beta Omicron Chapter alumnus Jason Stelly
- Northwestern Hills Golf Course
