The competition is about to begin in Sierra Madre with the 7th Annual Oktoberfest Golf and Tennis Tournament on Saturday, October 15, 2011. Sierra Madre Youth Programs are the beneficiary of this City sponsored event, with programs such as Friday activities in Kersting Court, Summer Fun in the Park, youth flag football, aquatics classes, YAC teen programs, Huck Finn Fishing Derby and Halloween Window Painting potentially 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 $70.00 per person or $250 per team of four (lunch included for both).
The tennis tournament will start at 8:00 a.m. as well and will be held at the Orange Grove tennis courts at the corner of Orange Grove Blvd. and Baldwin Avenue in the City of Arcadia.
