Mayor Carl Brewer will again offer his distinctive golf talents to willing buyers during the 3rd annual Bob Martz Memorial Golf Tournament Friday afternoon, May 21, at Auburn Hills Public Golf Course, 443 S. 135th St. West.
The Mayor’s Mulligan allows teams to pay $5 for the advantage of having the Mayor take a turn at sinking a putt. The Mayor will patrol the course throughout the tournament in pursuit of mulligan opportunities.
Proceeds from the tournament and the Mayor’s Mulligan will be divided between the Bob Martz Scholarship Fund created by the Wichita Junior Golf Foundation and the Hook-A-Kid-On-Golf program.
A limited number of four-person team entries are still available. Registration begins at 11 a.m. and a lunch and scramble play commences at noon. Advance registration and more information is available from City of Wichita Golf Course Manager Don Harrison at 268-4653 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The tournament commemorates the service of Councilmember Bob Martz, who died in office on Jan. 17, 2007. He represented City Council District 5, which contains the Auburn Hill Golf Course. He was succeeded in office by the current District 5 Councilmember Jeff Longwell.
During his tenure in city government, Councilmember Martz was actively involved in the planning and creation of the Auburn Hills course. Golf Week Magazine has recognized the course as one the top five municipal courses in Kansas.
Individual tournament entry fees are $75 a person. Golf carts, lunch and gift bags will be provided, along with prizes for three flights of competition. Participants also receive a free round of golf at any of the five local public courses. A pizza party and awards presentation follows the tournament.
Hole sponsorships in support of the Wichita Junior Golf Foundation scholarship are also available at $250. Sponsors will be identified in tee-box signs and will also be recognized in video coverage of the event on City7, the City of Wichita cable channel.
