St. Anthony’s Fifth Annual Golf Classic

The fifth annual St. Anthony’s Golf Classic returns on Friday, October 24, 2014 to the Bayou Club with a 12:45pm Shotgun start. The game of golf enjoys a noble history and we want to honor some of the great legends like Bobby Jones, Walter Hagan and Babe Zaharias. The theme will be seen throughout the day as we sport vintage apparel and plan unique contests (e.g. putting with a hickory shaft putter).
