Rodia Memorial Tournament: The Rodia Memorial Tournament is named after Frank Rodia, a California Golf Pro who moved to Hood Canal. The big tree on the left side of the 10th fairway is named after him. Frank became involved with Alderbrook in 1976, and was a great supporter of Junior Golf and of the Ladies Club. He encouraged women to keep trying, even when they had a high score. He was known for saying “The next day’s play will be much better.” Thus began the Frank Rodia Tournament. Frank funded the tournament until his death, and his wife continued to fund it for several years more. It is at this time we also remember Ladies Club members who are no longer with us. Held in late July, it is a two day eclectic competition, using your best net and/or gross score (as specified) of the two rounds for each hole. A patio pot-luck luncheon is held on the last day of the event.
