The 11th annual Peter Zornes Memorial Golf Tournament will be July 14 in Colfax with a 10 a.m. shotgun start. Check in begins at 9 a.m. for an 18 hole, four-man scramble competition, open for players of all ability levels.

In addition to the round itself, the Zornes tournament provides various contests during play and after the game has concluded, a chance to win a trip to Palm Springs, a shot at a $50,000 shootout, a silent auction and a catered dinner.

An on-sight certified athletic trainer will provide golfers with kinesthetic suggestions to help their games. Registration fees are $85 per golfer, or a $20 donation for dinner and post-golf festivities. Participants can enter as singles, doubles or a foursome.

The event was created by the Zornes family following the tragic loss of their son and brother. It is the primary fundraiser for the Peter A. Zornes Memorial Neuroscience Scholarship at WSU. Peter, a graduate of Oakesdale High School, was a 2003 cum laude graduate from the school in that field. The scholarship helps worthy candidates in either their junior or senior years. Recipients must meet a very specific set of requirements, showcasing Peter’s personal values of Integrity, Community Service, Originality, and Ethical Inquiry.

To date, 14 students have received financial backing from the Scholarship, for a total of nearly $16,000 in awards. These students have gone on to study medicine, research scientific and medical issues and attend veterinary school.
