Alumni, family and friends will gather at the Plainview Country Club this Saturday, Aug. 5 for the 2023 Forever Pirates alumni golf tournament fundraiser.

The event has been hosted since 2018, and raises funds for the Plainview Schools Foundation.
Dr. Darron Arlt, organizer of the event, said that this is the largest number of alumni he has had registered to play in the tournament’s history.

112 Golfers have registered for the event, with 56 alumni in the mix. The Class of 2004 has the most representation this year with eight registered.

The event will begin, as previous years with a 9 a.m. memorial service on the First Tee for those Pirates that have passed away since the previous tournament.
