The annual Jerry Houston Memorial Golf Tournament will be held Thursday, May 12 at Windtree Golf Course with a 1:30 p.m. shotgun start, according to tournament organizers.
Before his death in 2013, Houston - an avid golfer and longtime member of the Mt. Juliet Breakfast Rotary Club - was the owner of Houston's Meat and Produce in Mt. Juliet. He often provided food and support for local events, helping with youth sports, the Mt. Juliet Senior Activity Center, schools, churches, the Mt. Juliet Help Center, Big Brothers and many others. He also assisted in numerous Rotary Club projects, events and fund-raisers.
Proceeds from the tournament will be used the fund Rotary Club projects. The event features a hole-in-one contest, a putting contest, flighted field and free range balls. Entrée fees are $500 per team and $125 per individual. Hole sponsorships are available for $100. A barbecue lunch, catered by Houston's, is included and will begin at 11:30 a.m.
