2015 Burger Time golf tourney set for early July Bulletin Staff Report Last year the annual Burger Time “All Activities” High School Golf Tournament brought in $275,000 for high school activities in Las Cruces. Scheduled for Thursday to Saturday, July 9 to 11 at Red Hawk Golf Club, the event is in its 22nd year. The tournament started out as a fundraiser for Las Cruces high school football teams, but has expanded to include a variety of programs. More than $2 million has been raised so far. Basketball, baseball, track, swimming, cheerleading, ROTC – anything that’s recognized by the school district as an activity – can receive funding. This marks the first time the tournament will be held at Red Hawk Golf Club, 7502 Red Hawk Golf Road. “We started out at the old Las Cruces Country Club and had a wonderful run there,” Burger Time Foundation president Kevin Mc-Grath said. “And recently Sonoma Ranch has been a terrific host. “But, as they say, if you’re not moving forward, you’re falling back,” Mc-Grath said. “The tournament committee and I are excited to play our tournament at Red Hawk this year.” The 2015 tourney will be made up of five flights. Play will begin the afternoon of Thursday, July 9, and will wrap up the afternoon of Saturday, July 11. The annual sponsor dinner will be held at the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Museum – 4100 Dripping Springs Road – after the conclusion of play on Friday, July 10.
