Registration for the third annual Bishop Farrell Invitational Golf Tournament is nearing a capacity field of 240 golfers. All proceeds from the Sept. 16 event will provide immediate tuition assistance for students in Catholic schools in the Diocese of Dallas. Whether a golfer or not, supporters can participate in the record-setting event by becoming a sponsor. Visit www.bishopfarrellgolf.org or call 214-379-2823 for information.
This year’s tourney will be played at a new location, the TPC/Cottonwood Valley Courses at the Las Colinas Four Seasons Resort and Club in Irving.
Also new this year is the Farrell Cup Challenge, a competition that features foursomes from parishes throughout the Diocese of Dallas playing the Cottonwood Valley course to take home bragging rights and a trophy.
In addition, an auction at the post day-of-play reception will feature the following items:
- Day of golf for three players, Bishop Farrell and PGA champion Lee Trevino
- Signed and framed piece containing three Masters Flags: One signed by Arnold Palmer, another signed by Jack Nicklaus and one with the hard-to- get Tiger Woods’ autograph
- Day at the NASCAR races at the Texas Motor Speedway
“I join tournament co-chairs Vicky and Doug Lattner in inviting everyone to be part of this record-breaking tournament and help change lives through the gift of a Catholic education,” Bishop Kevin J. Farrell said.
