Annual Dr. Red Bell tourney coming in June

Merchants and Planters Bank and The Course at Eagle Mountain are pleased to host the annual Dr. Red Bell Memorial 3 Person Golf Tournament on Saturday, June 2 and Sunday, June 3.  

The event will be held at The Course at Eagle Mountain in Batesville. The tournament will begin with registration at 11 a.m. on Saturday, followed by a shotgun start at noon. A dinner will also be held that evening. Sunday’s round will start at 11 a.m. and an awards presentation will follow the completion of play, with prizes awarded per flight.

The tournament format is a three-person scramble. Flights will be determined by the number of entries and teams will be flighted by the tournament committee after Saturday’s round.  

Organized by The Course at Eagle Mountain and sponsored by Merchants and Planters Bank, the golf tournament is a well-attended annual event for area golfers and a memorial to the late Dr. Red Bell, the co-founder of The Course at Eagle Mountain.

“The tournament is named after a man that was very special to the Batesville community. It has become a fun and important annual event that honors Dr. Bell’s legacy and, of course, his love of golf,” says Lee Conditt, market president for Merchants and Planters Bank.

The tournament is limited to the first 40 paid teams, and the entry fee is $375 per team. This includes a practice round on Friday, range balls, dinner for players and one guest, greens fees and cart fees for all three days. Registration forms can be found at The Course at Eagle Mountain and Merchants and Planters Bank. For more information, please contact Jed Porter at (870) 612-8000.
