Memorial golf tournament May 13 benefits Spicewood, Pedernales volunteer fire departments


SPICEWOOD — The 17th annual Ron Pruitt Memorial Golf Tournament is May 13 at Barton Creek Country Club at Lakeside.

A shotgun start for the scramble-format tournament is 12:30 p.m. at the course, 1900 Clubhouse Hill Drive. The cost per player is $135 ($100 tax deductible) and includes dinner, beverages and prizes. Non-golfers may order dinner and beer for $25. Hole sponsorships that include a sign at the hole of choice are $100 each. Donations also will be accepted.

The tournament benefits the Spicewood and Pedernales EMS and volunteer fire departments and honors the memory of Ron Pruitt, a Lakeside club member and EMS committee chairman, who died in a car accident in Spicewood in 1996.

Since that year, the tournament has donated more than $166,000 to the two departments.

Prizes include a Ford 150 XLT 4×2 Super Crew truck from Johnson-Sewell of Marble Falls for the first hole-in-one on the No. 17 hole; an EZ-Go golf cart from Golf Cars of Austin for the first hole-in-one on the No. 8 hole; and gift certificates and more from local merchants.

To enter the tournament, send a check payable to BCLS EMS Fund, c/o Byron Zinn, 120 Hidden Springs Court, Spicewood, TX 78669. Entries are limited to the first 100 players.
