The 21st annual Rob Hall Memorial Golf Classic, hosted by the Indianola Academy Booster Club, will be held on Saturday, Aug. 18 at the Indianola Country Club. The 18-hole, two-person scramble will tee off at 1 p.m., following an 11:30 registration and noon lunch. The cost for the tournament is $85 for individuals and $170 for a team. This includes one muligan per person and 1 red bird per person, as well as lunch. Registration forms can be found on the Indianola Academy Facebook page.

The annual event is held in honor of Indianola Academy graduate and local entrepreneur Rob Hall, who was tragically killed in an accident while visiting Tennessee in July 1997. Hall would never get to meet his son, Robert, who currently plays football for Southern Methodist University. Proceeds from the event go toward one scholarship for an IA senior and other proceeds go toward the IA Booster Club. Checks can be made payable to the IA Booster Club. For any questions about the event, contact Doug Russell, tournament chair at 887-1301 or Jody Moor, IA B­­­­ooster Club president at 887-3363.
