CSC Golf Classic Is This Weekend

(Written By Con Marshall)

The 27th Chadron State College Golf Tournament, also known as the Don Beebe Classic, will take place this weekend at Ridgeview Country Club to help long-time friends renew acquaintances and provide support for the Eagles’ athletic program.

              Thirty-four four-person teams are entered.  They will be playing 18 holes both Saturday and Sunday with each team member swinging away on each hole. Half the teams will tee off at 7 a.m. and the others at about 1 p.m. on both dates.

              As per usual, many former Chadron State athletes will be returning, often joining with ex-teammates to form a foursome.  Numerous family units also have been formed.

In addition to the classic competition, there will be a Par-Three Shootout during the Friday evening social and check-in at the golf course. Participants will be challenged to “hit the green” in an elimination-style contest, with two shots for $10 on hole No. 2. The Par-Three Shootout will start from the red tees and eliminate contestants progressively until one golfer remains.

Contestants don’t have to be a classic participant to enter the shootout.
              A social hour and prime rib dinner also will start at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the Country Kitchen Restaurant Banquet Room.  Tickets for non-golfers to enjoy the dinner may still be reserved by calling 432-6362. The price is $25 per plate.

              Many Chadron State alumni besides former CSC athletes are among the entries.  So are lots of regular Ridgeview golfers. At least 60 of the participants have Chadron addresses.
