CLAPPS to host Beautification Golf Tournament


The Canyon Lake Association of Past Presidents, an organization composed of past presidents of the Canyon Lake Men’s Golf Club, will host its annual Beautification Tournament on Saturday, June 16, with a Shotgun start at 8 a.m. The tournament is open to the public. All proceeds will be used for golf course beautification projects.

The entry fee is $45 and includes lunch. Cart and green fee are not included. Signups are taken at the Golf Pro Shop at the country club. Lunch, awards, opportunity drawings and silent auction will follow the tournament at approximately 12:30 p.m.

This year’s format will be Partners Best Ball with three flights; Jack and Jill, Jack and Jack and Jill and Jill. An addition Scramble format has been added for those who want to play and don’t have a handicap.

The Beautification Tournament is formally known as the Tree Tournament. The Tree Tournament was started in 1982 by Jim Magill and his late wife Christine. The entry fee was one 15-gallon tree. As a result of the tournament, 217 trees were donated and planted on the golf course that year. When no more trees were needed, the tournament name was changed to the Beautification Tournament.

The tournaments have raised more than $50,000 for golf course improvements. Past projects include brass yard markers, 13 benches around the course, brass distance plaques, tee box markers and a new street clock, to name a few.
