Annual Chef’s Scramble at Wildhorse in October

PENDLETON, ORE. - Chefs are scrambling, but not in the kitchen, this time it is on the golf course.

The American Culinary Federation, Northwest Wine Country Chapter will be holding its seventh annual Chef’s Scramble Golf Tournament on Saturday, Oct. 12, at Wildhorse Resort and Casino.

 The event is open to the public and you do not have to be in the food and beverage business to take part.

According to Bruce Mecham, director of food and beverage at Wildhorse Resort and Casino, there are usually between 16 and 20 teams. Many of those teams are repeat customers that not only come for the golf, but for the tasty food served at the event.

“This is not your typical golf course lunch,” says Mecham. “The food is exceptional, it is what you would expect from some of the best culinary professionals in the area.”

 The festivities will start at 11:30 a.m. with lunch followed by a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m.

Entry fees are $75 per player or $300 for a team of four. Each entry

receives a special gift, food, drinks, prizes and a round of golf. 

 All proceeds benefit the American Culinary Federation, Inc. Northwest Wine Country Chapter and its community outreach programs.

For more information or to sign up for the event, contact Mecham at 541-966-1593 or
