  • The 5th Annual Pasture Golf Tournament will be held Aug. 23 in Beaumont.
    It will include food, artisan booths, a silent auction and lots of fun, all at McCoskey’s Hay Meadow, located in the Flint Hills three miles southwest of Beaumont.
    The golf tournament will be a nine-hole scramble with a cost of $50 per player and four-person teams. Entries of less than four will be combined with others to form a team. Checkin will be at 7 a.m. with a shotgun start at 7:30 and a brisket lunch starting at 11 a.m. In addition there will be separate golf holds for the kids, with prizes.
    The golf course will include obstacles such as natural ponds, hay bales and antique equipment.
    At 1 p.m. there will be a special clinic by the U.S. National Long Drive Champion Terry Forcum.
    Spectators are $15, with children under 12 free, and each admission includes barbecue.
    Several prizes will be given out, including a special award for first place ranch team of a cow patty trophy and Justin Boots. There also will be prizes for best dressed cowboy and cowgirl golfer, as well as best decorated golf transport. They are offering a $10,000 amateur hole-in-one prize as well.
    Those participating are asked to bring golf carts or ATVs, clubs, balls and beverages. Spectators can bring lawn chairs and cameras.
    In the past, participants have come from New York, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Nevada, California and throughout Kansas.
    The golf tournament is a benefit for the Beaumont Community Association, with funds going to build a community building.
    The Association feels the community needs a place for senior health issues to be addressed by the health nurse, a place to gather for events or pot luck suppers, etc.
    A plan has been developed for a building to replicate the old Frisco Depot in keeping with the town’s railroad history. They need to raise $150,000 for the building and so far they have raised and have commitments of $75,000.
    In case of rain, they thank everyone for their donation to this community organization.
