Annual Dr. Red Bell Memorial Tournament coming to The Course at Eagle Mountain


Merchants and Planters Bank and The Course at Eagle Mountain will be hosting the annual Dr. Red Bell Memorial Three Person Golf Tournament on Saturday, June 22, and Sunday, June 23.

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, and the event will start at noon. A dinner will also be held that evening.

The next round will start at 11 a.m. Sunday 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.

The tournament, organized by The Course at Eagle Mountain and sponsored by Merchants and Planters Bank, is 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,” said 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. Entry 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.
