Stars and Stripes

SkyRidge Golf Course in Sequim will host its annual Independence Day Stars and Stripes Golf Tournament on Saturday.

The two-person event features three separate formats over 27 holes of golf.

A 9:30 a.m. shotgun start will open play.

Golfers will play better ball from the green tees on the front nine, switch to the scramble format from the green tees on the back nine and finish with nine holes of alternate shot while playing from SkyRidge’s silver tees.

The cost is $90 per team and includes green fees, range balls, KPs, a long putt competition and food.

A honey pot competition is an extra $20 per person.

Power carts are $15 per seat.

River Center tourney

The second annual River Center Charity Golf Tournament is set for Friday through Sunday, July 31-Aug. 2, at Cedars at Dungeness.

The two-person scramble tournament is a fundraising event for the Dungeness River Audubon Center, sponsored by the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and 7 Cedars Resort.

Entry fee is $80 per person and includes green fees, golf cart, range balls, a boxed lunch and prizes.

A “virtual tournament,” players will tee off, play their round and then turn scores into the pro shop. The winning pair in multiple categories will be announced via email, with tournament prizes for pickup or mailed to winners.

All proceeds benefit the Dungeness River Audubon Center’s ongoing operations at Railroad Bridge Park.

The river center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that offers year-round adult education, workshops and field trips, as well as educating more than 3,000 students from Clallam and Jefferson counties each year with daylong watershed and nature studies.

Teams may also book foursomes for the tourney play dates.

About 30 hardy cyclists from the Victoria area came across on the early Coho ferry Monday to ride up to the top of Hurricane Ridge on Canada Day, the anniversary of the 1867 effective date of the country’s constitution. The cyclists make the round trip in about 4 hours in time for the return ferry ride back home, including this group on First St. in Port Angeles. The yearly trek has been happening for about 20 years and is organized only by word of mouth through various cycle shops in the greater Victoria area.
