At Bill Barr Memorial Golf Classic, it’s still about ‘Vinnie’s kids.’ This fundraiser helps meet the needs of children in affordable housing complexes.

Construction of playgrounds, homework clubs, summer camps and other amenities designed to keep kids engaged, entertained and safe, and to foster a sense of community in complexes ranging from the Santa Clara Apartments in Eugene to Alona Place in Junction City.

To help meet the growing need for programs, the tournament last year added a morning session to the traditional afternoon rounds at the tournament, which will be held Sept. 8 at the Springfield Golf Club and has been named the Bill Barr Memorial Golf Classic in honor of its founder.

Sponsorships and company foursomes are still available, and the cost for individuals is $125 per golfer and $650 for a business-sponsored foursome, which includes a hole sponsorship. Entry fees include a lunch, catered by Hole in the Wall Barbecue, between the morning and afternoon sessions.

Golfers can sign up online at or by calling (541) 743-7144.
