The third annual Yolo County Peace Officers Memorial Golf Classic is planned for Friday, Sept. 6, at the Yolo Fliers Golf Club, 17980 County Road 94 in Woodland.

All golfers are invited to participate in this fundraising event. The entry fee is $125 per golfer ($130 after Aug. 30), which includes golf, cart, lunch, a buffet dinner, golf hat and snack packages. Team entries are $500 and should be submitted before Aug. 30. Additional dinner tickets are available for guests and non-golfers for $30.

The tournament format is a four-person scramble with prizes for first and second places. Registration will begin at 10 a.m. with a shotgun start at 11 a.m. Mulligans and raffle tickets also will be available for purchase during registration, with additional raffle tickets available at the awards dinner.

Last year’s winning foursome was Jeff Weatherby, Jim Bonnilla, Scott Smith and Fidel Taylor.

Longest-drive and closest-to-the-hole contests are also planned, and Hoblit Chrysler Dodge Ram of Woodland will be sponsoring the hole-in-one contests at each par 3 hole. Any golfer who makes an ace on one of the designated holes will win a new 2013 Dodge Challenger.

Those who are unable to play in the tournament are invited to be a sponsor or donate a prize for the raffle or silent auction. Hole sponsorships from $100 to $1,000 will be accepted with gratitude.

Proceeds from the tournament will go toward maintenance of a permanent memorial at the Yolo County Courthouse in remembrance of Yolo County peace officers who died in the line of duty: Winters City Marshal William Rice, 1912; CHP Officer Ivan Casselman, 1935; Deputy Sheriff Walter J. Leinberger, 1943; Woodland police Officer Laurence L. Sills, 1945; Davis police Officer Douglas E. Cantrill, 1959; CHP Officer Roy Paul Blecher, 1978; CHP Officer William M. Freeman, 1978; West Sacramento police Officer James H. McKnight, 1990; CHP Sgt. Gary R. Wagers, 2001; CHP Officer Andrew Todd Stevens, 2005; and Yolo Deputy Sheriff Jose Antonio Diaz, 2008.

Proceeds also will be designated for a scholarship fund.

The nonprofit Yolo County Retired Peace Officers Association was established six years ago and has dedicated itself to building this memorial, which was dedicated on May 11. For more information, visit ycrpoa.org.

For tournament details, call Bob Jones at 530-662-7722 or Lee Refsland at 530-632-3592 or email [email protected]. All registration forms and donations should be submitted to the Yolo County Retired Peace Officers Memorial Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 8027, Woodland, CA 95776.
