ITE will be hosting a "Golf for People that Don't Golf" tournament at McMenamins Edgefield. Yes you can still be a golfer and come to the event, but we won't be keeping score! This is about having fun and socializing with other great members of Oregon ITE! This is a pitch and putt style 20 hole par 3 course. We have a limited amount of tee off times so start rallying your team of four. Or if you want to enter as a single person or a duo let us know and we will pair you up with other groups.
