 Tournament named for NY Yankees’ pitcher Allie Reynolds

OKLAHOMA CITY - The exclusive Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club, Oklahoma City’s most historic and prestigious golf course, is the site of the 18th annual Allie Reynolds Memorial Golf Tournament.  The tournament, scheduled Monday, April 14 at 11 a.m., benefits year-round programming at Red Earth, Inc. and gives participants a chance to win fantastic prizes.

            Legendary golf course architect Perry Maxwell designed the 18-hole course located in the heart of Nichols Hills.  It is an oasis of gentle rolling terrain with lakes, creeks, bunkers and deceptive greens. Maxwell is noted for the many courses he designed throughout the United States.

            “The Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club allows only six outside charity golf tournaments a year,” said Shane Lindstrom, Red Earth board member and tournament chairman, “making the Allie Memorial Golf Tournament an excellent opportunity to play one of Oklahoma’s most exclusive courses.

            “Tournament players will have opportunities to make a hole in one for a new car from Seth Wadley Auto Group and a beautiful Rolex watch from B.C. Clark Jewelers,” said Lindstrom.

The Allie Reynolds Memorial Golf Tournament is a tribute to Muscogee/Creek Indian and Oklahoma native Allie Pierce Reynolds, a founding father of the Red Earth Festival. Reynolds was one of Major League Baseball’s most feared pitchers of the 1940s and 1950s.  As a pitcher for the New York Yankees, Reynolds won six World Series from 1947-1953 and was six-time MLB All-Star from 1945-1954.

            The Red Earth tournament features four-member teams in 18 holes of scramble golf.  There are a limited number of team sponsorships, tee sponsorships and individual player slots available. Additional information is available online at www.RedEarth.org or by calling 405-427-5228.  Players receive lunch on the course, contests for a bevy of prizes, beverages throughout the day and an awards ceremony to wrap up the event. 

            Tournament sponsors include the Seth Wadley Auto Group, B.C. Clark Jewelers and City Bites.
