The Lake Lure Lions Club held their 37th Annual Golf Tournament on Friday, May 26, 2023 at the Bald Mountain Golf Course at Rumbling Bald. For the third year, Lion Trip Lanham, Golf Tournament Chair orchestrated a very successful tournament. It takes the whole club to make a great fundraiser. There are many details to oversee and jobs to fulfill.

Eighty-four golfers enjoyed a beautiful day of golf. A fun day was had by all. Lunch was provided and all winners received a nominal cash prize. Congratulations to the tournament winners.
