The third annual Dr. Edward J. Jacob Memorial Tournament, “The Jake,” will be held Aug. 14-15 at Highland Meadows Golf Club. The tournament was created in honor of Dr. Edward Jacob, who truly loved the game of golf, its traditions, competition and the people affiliated with the game. Jacob was a lifelong resident of Toledo, a long-time member of Highland Meadows Golf Club, and better known as the golfing dentist.
Richard McIntyre, who passed away on Aug. 13, 2014, also a longtime member of Highland Meadows and good friend of Jacob, is the memorial honoree of the 2015 tournament.
In conjunction with the golf tournament, the Dr. Edward J. Jacob Memorial Scholarship, a sportsmanship award in honor of Dr. Jacob, is given annually to a Toledo Junior Golf Association graduating senior or incoming high school senior.
The scholarship is founded through an endowment fund established at the Toledo Community Foundation. Several sponsorship opportunities are available and include tournament sponsor for $1,500; cart sponsor for $250; and Hole sponsor for $125. The entry fee is $250 per player, which includes the tournament, reception and dinner. The deadline for entry is Aug. 1. Download a tournament application at www.thejake.org.
