Youth Golf Teams From Local High Schools to Clash in Ninth Annual ‘Knabe Cup’

High school golfers from across Los Angeles County’s Fourth District will tee-off Wednesday, April 5, 2006, at Supervisor Don Knabe’s Ninth Annual Knabe Cup Golf Tournament.

Thirty six high school teams, comprised of four players per team, will compete at Lakewood Country Club in an individual and team tournament for individual honors and a chance to dethrone two-time defending team champion Gahr High School of Cerritos.

It constantly amazes me how the competition has gotten better and better as the years have gone on, said Supervisor Knabe. I am excited that this tournament is viewed as the precursor to the league and CIF Championships.

The tournament, sponsored each year by Supervisor Knabe, allows student-athletes to engage in friendly competition, regardless of their high school’s respective league affiliation. Each player receives a free lunch provided by McDonald’s, range balls and tee prizes. Additionally, first, second and third place finishers receive trophies and windbreakers. Supervisor Knabe will speak with players at 12:30 p.m., followed by the shotgun start at 1 p.m.
