Registration is under way for the inaugural Bob Buckner Endowment Golf Tournament, an event to help raise financial support for a newly created fund in honor of the recently retired longtime director of Western Carolina University’s Pride of the Mountains Marching Band.
The tournament will be held Friday, June 8, at Laurel Ridge Country Club in Waynesville. The entry fee for the four-person, captain’s-choice format event is $100 per player. Cost includes golf, breakfast, buffet lunch, two mulligans and a gift bag. Prizes will be awarded for first through thirdplace teams, and the winning team will receive a traveling trophy to keep for the year.
