Mitch Black memorial golf tournament

On September 19, 2021, the Friends of Chimacum Schools Education Foundation and the Port Ludlow Golf Club are sponsoring the second annual Mitch Black Memorial Golf Tournament to honor the memory of this beloved Chimacum teacher and golf coach and to support educational programs at the school where he taught and coached for over 30 years. Friends, family, and former students turned out in force last year, in spite of Covid and intense forest fire smoke, to reminisce about Mitch’s kindness, intelligence, and great love of the game.


Profits from this tournament last year funded three $1000 scholarships for Chimacum graduates, as well as providing $1000 in educator grants. Another goal of the event this year is to generate funds for the Chimacum High School golf program, first started by Mitch and very much a part of Port Ludlow’s rich golf history. The $400 fee per team includes a round of golf, delicious lunch provided by The Dusty Green, and on-course competitions with great prizes.  Please contact Adam Barrows at the Port Ludlow Golf Course (; phone: 360-437-0272)) for details. We hope to see you there!
