Youth benefit golf tourney set for Sept. 10

The annual Santiam Canyon Youth Benefit Golf Tournament is back in full swing.

The event, which has raised $286,000 in its 22 years, was forced to shift gears the past two years because of COVID.

“We expect to have all the bells and whistles that our tournament was noted for again this year after a couple of years of reduced elements,” said Mike Long, event coordinator.

This year’s tournament is set for an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start on Saturday, Sept. 10 at Mallard Creek in Lebanon. Long said that the field still has spots available for 4-person teams in all three divisions – men’s handicap, mixed and duffers. You can sign up at, call Long at 503-987-4902 or email him at mikelong@ybgolf.

Long said that businesses and individuals can help by signing up as a sponsor, donate a gift certificate or make a cash donation.

“One hundred percent of all sponsorship and donation dollars go for scholarships and funding assistance grants for youth programs in the Santiam Canyon,” Long said. 

Carts are included and golfers also will receive morning snacks and beverages and a catered lunch from Double JJ BBQ. Sponsored games will take place through the event.
