The Opie-Coxie benefit
scramble golf tournament
at Dominion Meadows
Golf Course will be held on
Saturday. The tournament
pays tribute to the late John
Ochs and Steve Cox.
This fun event, open to
golfers of all ability levels,
raises money for the nonprofit
Opie-Coxie Foundation.
All proceeds from one
of the most popular golf
tournaments on the Dominion
Meadows calendar each
season are used to support
youth in the area. Funds
are utilized to help young
people participate in sports
or educational programs
they might not otherwise
be able to afford.
The foundation motto:
“No child will be left out…
not if the Opie-Coxie can do
anything about it!”
Scramble golf is the
format for the four to fiveperson
teams. Entry fee
is $45 per person if paid
by July 16 and $50 if paid
after July 16. The entry fee
includes golf, dinner and a
full day of fun.
Check-in for the tournament
starts at 9 a.m. Potato
Gun start is at 10 a.m. at
Dominion Meadows.
Entry forms are available
at DM pro Andy Hite’s Just
Rip it Golf Shop at Dominion
Meadows. Completed
entry fees can be turned in
at the pro shop or mailed
to Marilee Floener, 1140
S.E. Park Drive, Colville,
99114.
Once again, Buxton
Financial Services is sponsoring
a hole-in-one contest.
Each par 3 hole played
will have a special prize for
a hole-in-one. The par 3
16th hole will have a $5,000
cash prize for an ace.
The final Shootout Hole
In One Contest is at DM on
Sept. 20.
Those who don’t play
golf are invited to attend
in the evening and take
advantage of the live and
silent auctions. Some of the
auction items include golf
packages to Circling Raven
(Worley, Idaho) and Wildhorse
Casino in Pendleton,
Oregon. There are tickets
to Silverwood, the Spokane
Indians and the Spokane
Chiefs. Night stays at the
Hilton and DoubleTree in
Spokane are also available.
There are also many other
items up for auction.
Over the course of nine
years, the Opie/Coxie has
helped to contribute more
than $99,000 to area young
people through the memorial
fund. To date, $85,000
of that money has been
paid out to help area youth
and to Colville’s own Elks
Lodge No. 1753 and the
Elks Therapy Program for
Children.
