Gary Anderson Open

Aaron Dunn tees off on the par three fifth hole in Gary Anderson Open action in this Headlight Herald file photo. The two person team event is open to the public with proceeds going to the hearing impaired. The tournament is slated for July 13-14 with a golfers’ reception Friday July 12.

This year marks the 34th Annual Gary Anderson Open and the 34th year all of the proceeds will go toward the charity close to Gray’s heart.

“I have a grandson who is hearing-impaired, so when we started this event, we decided to help that cause,” Gary has said. “When we started this event a man named Tom Thompson at the Education Service District said there was a need, we were doing the tournament for fun and he said ‘why don’t we make it a charity event.”’

According to Tournament Director Roby Lane, the tournament tees off July 13 -14 with morning and afternoon shotgun starts at Alderbrook Golf Course, there is still room for two person teams. The event gets rolling Friday evening with a seafood feast.  

Along with two days of golf, Gary supplies three days of food for the players, sponsors and volunteers each evening hosting a dinner at Bay City Hall beginning at 6 p.m. each night.

Friday evening is a seafood dinner with clams and oysters he and some of the volunteers go out and collect locally. It’s a good night to get checked in and enjoy some socializing prior to play the next day.

Saturday is a burger feed and Sunday Gary hosts a steak feed and hands out the prizes. Golfers will also enjoy raffle and door prizes and a silent auction.  

To handle the amount of golfers, there are two shotgun starts on Saturday and Sunday. One at 7 a.m. and one at noon. This year’s event is July 12-14 and there is still time to get a partner and signup. The cost is $170 per team if you are a member of Alderbrook Golf Course and $330 per team for nonmembers.

You can get an entry form at Alderbrook Golf Course or by calling Roby Lane, at 503-801-2988. With the field filling up fast, Roby suggests getting your entry form in quickly.
