LARAMIE, Wyo. - The University of Wyoming Cowboy Joe Club announced its tournament dates for the Sixth Annual Cowboy Joe Golf Series today. The series includes 16 tournaments in all.
The series will tee off in Phoenix on April 7 and will conclude the regular season on August 10 in Casper. A four-person scramble format will be used at each tournament. The winning teams from each local tournament will then be invited to play in the championship tournament at the Cheyenne Country Club on Friday, Sept. 7. The winners of the championship round will receive a trip to San Diego with the football team in November.
Other tournament sites include Denver, Colo., Douglas, Torrington, Riverton, Buffalo, Jackson, Powell, Sheridan, Spearfish, S.D., Rock Springs and Laramie. Any Wyoming fan, both men and women, are eligible to compete in each of the qualifying tournaments. This is not limited to Cowboy Joe Club members as it is open to the public.
"The golf series has become one of our biggest fund-raising efforts each year," said Associate Athletics Director of Development John Stark. "We had over 1,800 golfers participate last year and it's important to sign up in advance as many tournaments sell out.
"This is not only a great way to support the University of Wyoming Athletics Department but participants have the opportunity to golf and meet many of our coaches, administrators and student-athletes at each event."
Entry fees for each tournament, which includes green fees, cart (where available), food and a complimentary shoe bag, will vary at each site. Proceeds from the tournaments benefit student-athletes at the University of Wyoming. For more information please contact the Cowboy Joe Club at (307) 766-6242.
