The Manzanita Open – the first of the North Coast’s fundraising golf tournaments is set for play on the newly re-named Manzanita Links under its new ownership. The weekend-long charity tournament starts May 18.
The 30th Manzanita Open is the main fundraiser for the Eugene Schmuck Foundation for the organization’s 21 years. “Golf was a passion for Gene Schmuck and he was active in this tournament from the beginning,” said ESF president Bob Joseph.
The Manzanita Open is a 9 hole scramble and the cost is $50.00/ person. There will be a men’s division, women’s division, mixed division, and a senior division (all over 65). There are still plenty of good tee times available for each of the three days. You can sign up as a single and we’ll find a spot for you.
In addition to great golf, there are auctions and raffles with one-of-a-kind items and prizes.
Local artist Debbie Harmon contributed the illustration to benefit the ESF Foundation – available in cards, and a limited edition poster print will be available at the auction as well.
The ESF is a local non-profit organization dedicated to serving the charities in the North Tillamook County area. The foundation has raised and distributed over $1,300,000 since its inception in 1997.
