Golf Classic Draws Over 200 Participants

Over 200 golfers attended the 20th annual Catholic High Alumni Golf Classic at Carter Plantation. Golfers were treated to a continental breakfast by Carter Plantation, lunch by Carrabba’s Italian Grill and a crawfish etouffee for dinner prepared by Pete Hymel. Snacks on the course were provided by Kellogg’s and Manda Fine Meats. To overcome the warm conditions golfers were treated to cold beverages provided by Zippy’s, Baton Rouge Beer Agency and Baton Rouge Coca Cola. Each golfer received a coupon for $60 worth of products and enjoyed shopping at the Nike Store set up by the course.

"The CHS Alumni Golf Classic is for many the official sign that spring has arrived. The annual event brings many alumni and friends together in fellowship to showcase their new and improved golf skills and to compete for the privilege of being crowned the top team or shot maker in the tournament," commented CHS Director of Alumni Relations Glen Randow.

The 2009 Alumni Golf Classic committee was chaired by Craig Broome ’93. His committee members were Camp Matens ’60, Terry Orillion ’77, Rory Hebert ’97, Steve Maher ’94, Dale LeBlanc ’95 and Scott Ritter ’93.

‘We would like to thank Carter Plantation for their hospitality in hosting this year’s tournament, to the volunteers for their on-course assistance and our major tournament sponsors, Cajun Industries, LLC, McDonald’s Valluzzo Management and Amedisys Home Health Services remarked tournament chairman Craig Broome 93,’ commented Event Chairman Chad Broome ’93.
