Saint Francis of Assisi Fiesta Committee has scheduled the second annual Fiesta Golf Tournament for Sunday, June 28, at the Queen Valley Golf Club in Queen Valley approximately three miles north of US Highway 60 turn-off.

The tournament is open to the public and in particular for anyone who enjoys playing golf. Registration will begin at 6:30 a.m. with tee-off at 7:30 a.m. The tourney is a fundraiser for the 35th annual Fiesta. The Fiesta is held each September on the church grounds at Church Avenue and Main Street. The selected date for this year’s Fiesta is the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 13 and 14.

The tournament has a three-man scramble format with a fee of $45 per player. The fee includes the golf fee, golf cart and lunch. The committee hopes to have approximately 30 to 40 teams participating in the golf tournament. The cash prizes offered for first, second and third places will be based on the number of entries. The tournament will include prizes for the Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin, as well as various giveaways. The 50/50 Hole will be at hole number 10 and the winner will receive 50 percent of the money put up. There are 18 hole sponsorships available at $50 a hole. Any club organization, business or individual who would like to sponsor a hole should call Pati Castaneda at 520-827-9960 or Leslie Bryant at 520-463-2214.

Starting with registration, food items will be available. Breakfast burros will be the morning specialty. A hamburger lunch will be offered as part of the registration fee.
