Golf and Poker, The Gambler's Version of Surf and Turf

Posted By on Wed, Mar 7, 2012 at 1:00 PM

If you like the links, and are a fan of the felt, clear your schedule for March 31.

That's when Casino del Sol is hosting its 11th annual Golf & Poker Scramble, a gathering that just screams action junky.

For $75 per person you can participate (first) in a 2-person scramble at Del Lago Golf Club in Vail, then wrap the day after with a tag-team No-Limit Hold'Em poker tournament with a guaranteed $2,000 prize pool at Casino del Sol.

Del Sol poker room director Rick Chaurette said the event is one of the most eagerly anticipated by both his employees — many of whom play golf on their days off from dealing poker — and regular customers. The idea started with him when he worked at a casino in Laughlin, Nev., and followed him to Tucson more than a decade ago.

"I have people starting to ask me about this all the way back in October," Chaurette said. "It's a good way to get people out and have some fun."

Chaurette said the event can accommodate about 100 pairings. Entries can be made at the Del Sol poker room and must be turned in by March 26. For more information check out the casino's Web site.
