L.C. Lucas Memorial Tournament


To Our Friends, Neighbors and Business Associates:

It is that time of year again that Charwood Golf Club honors our founder and our military. On Friday, November 10, 2023, the 26th Annual L.C. Lucas Memorial Tournament will be held at Charwood Golf Club in the Pine Ridge community in honor of Mr. Lucas, who was a resident and business owner in the West Metro area for forty-five years. He started several businesses during this time and was notably a homebuilder and founder of Charwood Country Club in 1978. As you recall one of our faithful suggested we hold this tournament on Veterans Day to honor our Vets as well as our founder Lester “LC” Lucas, who was a WWII Navy Veteran.

After his death in 1998, the Lucas family established Charwood Charities to honor his memory and to perpetuate his caring and giving nature. The charity provides direct grants in the form of gift certificates for Christmas, medications, food, clothing, utilities, and shelter to needy families within the Midlands. Local area schools participate in our efforts to help needy families throughout the year. Last year we raised over $10,000. With your help, we can do even better this year.

The sole source of funding for this charity is the annual L.C. Lucas Memorial Golf Tournament held in the fall at Charwood Golf Club. All the proceeds are used to help those less fortunate than ourselves. Yes, I know, it is hard to believe these days that there may be some out there less fortunate than what some are currently going thru, but there is. We hold this day of golf, food, friendship and fellowship to raise the funds to help those locally who struggle to get by with many of the things we take for granted.

We need your financial support to continue the good work in Mr. Lucas’s name. Please consider participating by playing, sponsoring a hole, donating a gift, prize, or money, and accept our pledge that every single dollar goes directly to those in need. Hole sponsors will have a business sign posted on the golf course during the tournament. Charwood Golf Club donates the golf course each year for this event and non-tournament play will be limited.

Once again we will start registration at 9:00AM and shotgun start at 10:30. So be ready for your choice of some morning Mimosa’s, Bloody Mary’s, coffee, etc. to help get your morning kick started and on your way to a fun filled day.
