Golfers who ever played high school football against any of coach Dick Armstrong’s Snohomish High teams from 1963 through 1994 are invited to form a foursome and enter a new “rivals division” at the 2012 Armstrong Memorial Golf Tournament this summer.

The seventh-annual tournament will be played Friday, Aug. 17, at Snohomish Public Golf Course. Featured guest this year will be Jim Walden, former Washington State University football coach and radio color man for Cougars radio broadcasts.

Foursomes from other schools in the rivals division will compete with one or more foursomes of former Snohomish football players from the Armstrong era in the regular tournament’s four-man scramble format. Each foursome will keep its own net score. All golfers will hit, but blocking and tackling won’t be tolerated. Teams in the rivals division may also compete for open, low-net and low-handicap honors and other tournament prizes.

All golfers are welcome regardless of football background. Entry fee is $90 per player if paid before Aug. 1, and $100 after that. Entry includes greens fees, cart, beverages, lunch and team photos. Registration forms are available online at

The tournament is a fundraiser for the Coach Armstrong Memorial Scholarship, administered by the Snohomish Education Foundation. Walden will also be available at a no-host gathering on Thursday, Aug. 16, at 7 p.m. at Snohomish Station Pizza & Pub.
