DOYLE GEER MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT

Doyle Geer was an important part of ASCA for many years and continued to be involved until he passed away in December of 2004. Doyle was the mayor of Anacortes when the first ASCA relationship was established with Lomonosov, Russia. 

 

A couple of years later, Doyle oversaw the beginnings of the ASCA relationship with Kisakata, Japan. This relationship was very special to him. He made a farewell trip to Kisakata just months before he passed away. Doyle had also been very active in the Anacortes Youth Sports Coalition. Because of Doyle's efforts, ASCA and AYSC developed a strong relationship. ASCA is honored to name our annual golf tournament after Doyle Geer. ASCA is pleased to honor Doyle's children as Lifetime Honorary Players in our annual Golf Tournament.

Scramble format consists of each player teeing off, and the team selecting a preferred ball to play the next shot.

 

Each player then hits his or her next shot from that spot. All subsequent shots are followed in the same manner until the first ball is holed out.

 

Do not tap in a putt prior to all players having putted from the previous spot. The team must use each player's tee shot at least twice during the round.
