BAF Legends of Advertising Golf Tournament

Boise Advertising Federation's Legends of Advertising Golf Tournament

If you haven’t already heard, it’s that time of year again. The Boise Advertising Federation is hosting the 2012 Legends of Advertising golf tournament.

This year, the tournament will be held on Thursday, September 13th at Shadow Valley Golf Course. It is also being held about a month earlier than in years past, which should help with weather issues that the tournament has run into in the past.

Costs for the tournament are:

  • Single player: $65.00
  • Foursome: $260
  • Foursome plus hole sponsorship: $450

All entries include a barbecue following the tournament. Additional details are below. Online registration is available on the BAF’s website.
