The First-Ever Ninth Annual Louis J. Lorimier Memorial World-Famous Downtown Golf Tournament is coming to Cape Girardeau on Sunday, Sept. 28, 2014.
This is a nine-hole course starting at the Common Pleas Courthouse, and then it weaves across Cape Girardeau’s downtown businesses through alleys and even down to the riverfront.
The tournament is a fundraiser for the Red House Interpretive Center. The entry fee is $25 a person which includes the nine holes of golf, some BirdieBalls for putting, and an all-you-can-eat catfish buffet. Participants are asked to bring one club of their choice, either a five iron or a six iron, and the Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Foundation will provide special strike pads to minimize damage to playing surfaces and equipment.
A BirdieBall is a plastic, napkin-ring shaped ball that will be used during the tournament.
Early, discounted registration closes on Sept. 24 and an entry fee must accompany a completed entry form. The late fee is $35. The tournament is open to all ages.
