The Johnny Antoon Memorial Golf Tournament, sponsored by the NSU Foundation, has been rescheduled for Saturday, July 25 at Northwestern Hills Golf Course. Proceeds will benefit the Johnny Antoon Scholarship, established to honor the Natchitoches businessman and long-time NSU supporter.
“For my Dad’s 65th Birthday, a scholarship at Northwestern State University was set up in his name. We lost my sweet Dad on November 25, 2015. A few years ago, we began hosting a golf tournament to benefit his scholarship. Our hope is to keep his legacy alive for many years to come,” said Danielle Antoon Cobb, associate director of Development.
The festivities will begin with a pre-party, set for 7 p.m. Friday, July 24 at Antoon’s. Tickets are a minimum $10 donation to the Antoon Scholarship.
Check-in for the tournament will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. Mulligans can be purchased for $10 at check-in. Prizes will be based on the number of teams. There will be at least one gimmick hole, closest to the hole and longest drive prizes.
The golf entry fee is $100, which provides one golfer with a cart, lunch and refreshments and one ticket to the pre-party. Tee signs can be purchased for $50.
A golf sponsorship of $400 includes a tee sign, entry for four golfers with cart, lunch and refreshments for four golfers and four tickets to the pre-party. Sponsorships must be received by July 17 to guarantee a golf cart.
In conjunction, the Antoon’s Wild Women’s Pokeno Brunch will take place at 10 a.m. at Antoon’s. Tickets are $30 which includes brunch at Antoon’s, bottomless mimosas and bloody marys, one ticket to the pre-party and pokeno.
