Tau Chapter Golf Tournaments Return to Spring Schedules


2021 Tau Open winning team: Jim Pritchett ’71, Loren Singletary ’67, Tom Wimberly ’69, and John Ross ‘69

The 36th annual Tau Open Golf Tournament was held April 16 and 17 at Lakeway Country Club’s Yaupon and Live Oak Golf Courses. Eighteen teams participated.

The Oasis Restaurant, known for its stunning sunset views over Lake Travis, was the venue for this year's tournament banquet.

The winning team was determined by a horse race playoff marshaled by the Lakeway Pro. Low gross and net for both flights were in the horse race. The “Chuck Tuck Trophy” was awarded to the team with the highest gross score.
