Precious few spots left in Friday’s Outlaw Open

Greens look good

Outlaw Open remains among Aspen Lakes’ favorite local traditions

Playing golf is always wonderful. But playing golf for a cause? Well, that is an event worth cherishing.

The Outlaw Open Golf Tournament, an annual tradition at Aspen Lakes Golf Course since 1998,  provides such an opportunity. Just days away from teeing off for its 19th edition, on Friday, June 17, the Outlaw Open has precious few spaces left and once again expects to sell out.

Since 1998, The Outlaw Open has been among the highlights on Sisters events calendar. There are reasons why the tournament, which tees off with a 1 p.m. shotgun start, has become an annual tradition.

In its 19 years, The Outlaw Open has raised more than $250,000 for Outlaw athletics, including more than $30,000 since the Outlaw Booster Club began pairing The Outlaw Open and Outlaw Hall of Fame Banquet and Induction Ceremony.

More than that, though, the tournament is always fun: a community gathering as much as it is a golf tournament. The tournament includes a dinner and live auction. And new this year will be a dance and a performance by Central Oregon’s own High Street Band.

Cost to play in the tournament is $130 per golfer, and that includes dinner, auction and entertainment. Those not interested in playing are invited to attend the dinner and post-dinner entertainment ($30 per person) or just the High Street Band performance and dance ($10). Sponsorships are also available.

Aspen Lakes has been involved from the beginning, and has donated the use of the course for all 19 tournaments.

“One of the things we wanted when we built the golf course was to be able to give back to the Sisters community,” says Pam Mitchell, who co-owns Aspen Lakes. “This is one of those ways we do it. The Outlaw Open helps support the Sisters football program and the rest of the school’s extracurricular activities.”

The Outlaw Open is an event that you won’t want to miss!
