Golf tournament to benefit Boutwell

Since he retired from teaching and coaching in 2005, Ronnie Boutwell has worked at Twin Pines Country Club.

Boutwell, along with Twin Pines Manager Howard Beall, have helped countless families with benefit golf tournaments at the country club.

This time, it's Boutwell's family who will be the beneficiary of a golf tournament set for Friday, March 30th.

A benefit tournament for David Boutwell, Ronnie's son, will begin that day at 11 a.m., with registration and lunch for all participants. A shotgun start will begin at 12:30 p.m. The event is a four-man scramble with an entry fee of $240 per team.

David, who lives in Muscle Shoals with his wife Kristen and their four children, is battling glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. The tournament was set up to raise funds for David and his family to help offset medical expenses and costs of traveling to and from Birmingham for his treatment.

Along with Ronnie, Ernest Presley is coordinating the benefit tournament for the Boutwell family.

Boutwell has undergone two procedures, one last April and another in November of 2017. The most recent surgery resulted from the return of the cancer and the need to remove scar tissue from the first surgery.

Boutwell is a Russellville High School graduate who's been around the sport of golf his entire life. Ronnie was a long-time Russellville City Schools teacher and coach. The Boutwells were raised on the golf course so it's fitting to reach out to the local golf community to help one of its own.

This will help with some of their expenses and costs,” Boutwell said of the tournament. “Ernest is doing a wonderful job with this and we appreciate his great effort so much.”

Non-golfers can support the cause by making a cash donation or donating a door prize for the tournament.

For more information on the tournament, or to register, contact Presley at 256-460-5805 or Ronnie Boutwell at 256-324-0960.
