Save the date for Mitch Black Memorial tourney
PORT LUDLOW — Registration is underway for the third annual Mitch Black Memorial Golf Tournament at Port Ludlow Golf Club on Sept. 18.
The tournament is held to honor the memory of Mitch Black, a Chimacum High School teacher and Cowboys head golf coach for more than 35 years, who died in 2020. Friends, family and former students have turned out in force in recent years to reminisce about Black’s kindness, intelligence and great love of the game of golf.
Profits from the tournament have funded three $2,000 scholarships for Chimacum graduates as well as providing funds for educator grants.
The cost is $500 per four-player team and includes a round of golf, lunch provided by The Dusty Green Cafe and on-course competitions and prizes.
The event is sponsored by The Friends of Chimacum Schools Education Foundation and Port Ludlow Golf Club.
