Golf Programs Benefit From Reedsport Golf Tournament

The Reedsport Braves Boosters Association have announced that the Bill Humphreys Memorial Golf Tournament will take place on Sunday, September 2nd, at 2pm at Reedsport’’s Forest Hills Country Club. This annual event benefits high school and junior golf programs in Reedsport, and is largely responsible for their continued existence.
Event coordinator Mark Bedard, a 1976 Reedsport High School graduate and life-long Reedsport resident, invites all area golfers to participate. “The Humphreys event is open to golfers of all skill levels and the scramble format makes it fun for everyone. Bill Humphreys was a member of the first golf team at RHS in the early 1960s, and went on to become a respected local banker, helping to finance Reedsport’s growth for three decades. He was also a charter member of both Forest Hills, and the Reedsport Braves Boosters. This is the 18th year for the memorial event, which was begun by former RHS educators and golf coaches Jim and Mary Ann Wells. With their recent retirement from coaching, the event is now being conducted by the Braves Boosters Association.

The event features scramble (best ball) teams of approximately six people, with a shotgun start (all teams starting at the same time, on a different hole.) Entry fee is $30, which includes a post-match meal service. Full or partial teams, or individuals, are asked to sign-up in advance, by contacting Bedard at 541-662-0543, or by e-mailing It is not necessary to pre-register at the golf course.
