Manzanita Open Golf Tournament & The Eugene Schmuck Foundation

The Eugene Schmuck Foundation is a local non-profit organization dedicated to serving the charities in the North Tillamook County area.


The foundation has contributed over $1,000,000 since its inception in 1997. Examples of the donations each year are:

  • Scholarships to Neah-Kah-Nie High School students
  • North County Food Bank
  • North County Recreation District
  • Neah-Kah-Nie District 56 Schools and Garibaldi Grade School Programs
  • Tillamook County Hospice Program
  • Neah-Kah-Nie Youth Athletics
  • Secret Angels
  • Meals for Seniors
  • As well as many other charities

For 2016, a new slate of officers has been voted in: President – Bob Joseph, Vice President – Erick White, Secretary – Sally Vanebo, and Treasurer – Dave Matthews (former President). Other members of the ESF Board include Dave Stephens, Corey Douma, Connie Vanderwaal, Tom Moore, and Ron Owens.

The Eugene Schmuck Foundation is once again asking for help. Their fundraiser is held once a year and is run in conjunction with the Manzanita Open. Please consider helping out by being a sponsor and for those that are already sponsors, they ask for your renewed support.

To find out how to become a sponsor, please contact any of the Board Members.



The Manzanita Open will be held on May 13-15


The Manzanita Open is a fun event for everyone with games, a silent auction, raffles, and food court.

The ESF will host all the outside activities and the Manzanita Golf Course will be in charge of the inside activities. The ESF will receive a portion of the greens fees and all the proceeds from the silent auction, games, raffles, and food court as well as the generous donations from individual sponsors.

Because the ESF is a non-profit organization, all donations are tax deductible.

(However your greens fees are not.)

Keep this date on your radar screen – Feb 1. This is the first date to sign up for the 2016 Manzanita Open. The best tee times tend to fill up quickly, so please call if you wish to sign up with a foursome.


Sign up for a tee time starts Feb. 1 at 8 a.m. by calling the Manzanita Golf Course 503-368-5744.


For questions about the ESF, the tournament, sponsorship or donations call Bob Joseph 503-368-3187 or Dave Matthews 503-739-0909 or any of the Board Members.
