Oak Creek Charity golf tourney set for July 28-29

GREENVILLE —   Oak Creek Country Club of Greenville is seeking entries for the 27th Annual Oak Creek Charity Memorial Golf Tournament set for July 28-29.

  This year’s two-player scramble honors the memory of longtime Oak Creek member James Williams, who passed away in August. Williams, who recorded two holes-in-one during his golfing career, worked for more than 30 years at L-3 and E Systems.

  The tournament benefits a local charity each year.

  The entry fee is $300 per team, including mulligans. Entry forms are available at Oak Creek Country Club or by contacting Jerry Kirchman at 903-450-7237.

  Scott Coffman and Brady Jones won last year’s tournament after Coffman drained an eight-foot birdie putt on the second hole of sudden death. Coffman and Jones had tied for first place in regulation with Brandon Adams and Alan Hawkins. Both teams fired rounds of 60 and 62 for 36 holes of regulation.

Coffman and Jones have won three straight titles at Oak Creek, including the last two Dale Weaks Memorial events. Coffman said after the recent Weaks tournament that the team will not be appearing in this tournament.

  Julian Bowers and Zach Newell were third in this tournament last year with their rounds of 63 and 60.

Ed Harrison and Josh Jordan claimed the first flight title by four shots last year with a 121 total, which was the low score for the tournament.

  Andrew Rainey and Mitchell King tied for first place in the second flight last year with Jerry East and Vien Bobbitt.

  Chad Arnold and Jack Woody claimed the third flight by three shots last year and Debbie Sickels and Keith Jacobs won the fourth flight by two strokes.

  The event was originally named for Chris Athens, a popular local golfer who died in an automobile accident in 1985. The Athens family originally put on the tournament but turned over operations to Oak Creek.
