Vintage Texas Scramble Golf Tournament

History

Vintage has an annual Golf Tournament in late May or early June. This is a fun affair (Texas Scramble) open to Vintage players, partners and friends. Roger Otteson organized the first tournament. When Bob Morrissey got involved in 2004, Ross Macfarland was the organizer. Veteran Vintage members have been honoured since 2005.


The annual Golf Tournament was played at Pioneer Meadows until 2014. In 2015, the tournament moved to River Ridge Country Club.
