Delta Downs Lady Luck Charity Tournament
Delta Downs Lady Luck Charity Tournament was held at Rayburn Country Golf Club near Jasper, TX on October 11-13. This 2-lady tournament was scheduled to be a best-ball on day one and a scramble on day two. However, the weather did not cooperate and the tournament was changed to a scramble on day one, hoping to speed up play and get the round completed in spite of the large chance of rain. After two days, we were able to complete one round of golf, in and out of the raindrops and lightening.
It sounds rather depressing, but the tournament was a very good tournament with lots of big door prizes, great award prizes, and food supplied for almost every meal while there. One night included a guitarist/singer on the back patio to entertain us all as well as a Texas Hold ‘Em tournament.
There were raffle opportunities for lots of free golf and goodies all over a 200-mile radius. And the purpose of the tournament was to raise money for charity, which it did. The Humane Society, the Jasper Fire Department, and CASA received a total of about $10,000 in donations which were raised with the help of the main sponsor….Delta Downs at Vinton, LA.
We had two teams that made the short trip to Rayburn Country and both teams came back as winners. Vicki Cella and Kathleen McCoy won 2nd Low Net in the First Flight while Donna Cobb and Martha Lawhorne won 1st Gross in the Second Flight. We highly recommend this tournament as there is lots of “bang for your buck” with this entry fee and the on-site lodging is super-reasonable.
