The competition is about to begin in Sierra Madre with the 8th Annual Oktoberfest Golf and Tennis Tournament on Saturday, October 20, 2012. Sierra Madre Community Programs are the beneficiary of this City sponsored event, with programs like Movies in the Park, Summer Fun in the Park, Huck Finn Fishing Derby, Halloween Window Painting, and the Sierra Madre Historic Bike Ride receiving support.
The golf tournament will be played on a nine-hole course as a foursome, best-ball format at the Eaton Canyon Golf Course with an 8:00 a.m. start time and assigned tee times. All skill levels are welcome and the best-ball format is perfect for beginning golfers! Golfers can sign up as a team or as an individual and the top team receives individual trophies and immortality on the Oktoberfest Golf Tournament perpetual trophy. Want some additional fun? Take a chance in our Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive, and Putting contests. For those concerned with their swing, Mulligans are available to ensure a better score. Golf tournament fees are $83.00 per person or $300 per team of four (lunch included for both).
