A golf tournament tradition continues

COOKEVILLE – The Anne Cameron Memorial Golf Tournament, Cookeville’s oldest charity tournament, is back for its 41st year and will once again be held the Saturday before Father’s Day.

The event, which honors the memory of both Anne Cameron and Bobby Nichols, raises funds for free mammograms for women in-need, and charitable aid for cancer patients at Cookeville Regional Medical Center.

The Anne Cameron Memorial Golf Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, June 18, at Ironwood Golf Course. A four-man scramble flight will start at 8 a.m. with registration and breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Contests and prizes will include longest drive, closest to the pin, a $10,000 hole-in-one prize; and first, second, third place team awards. Breakfast and lunch are included in the registration fee.

“The Anne Cameron Golf Tournament is a great way for companies and individuals to give back while having a great time,” added John Bell, executive director of the Cookeville Regional Charitable Foundation. “The funds raised at this tournament will have a real impact on the lives of local patients in-need.”

Cameron lost her battle with breast cancer in 1988, and Nichols, former golf pro and owner of Ironwood Golf Course, passed away in 2008.

“The tournament is a lot of fun and we are proud that it helps with charitable care for local patients in honor of Anne,” said William Cameron of Cameron, Goolsby & Gross Attorneys at Law; and brother to Anne.
