Annual Bob Cup golf tourney to honor Duncan, Dow

Created in memory of longtime Sequim resident Bob Duncan, the seventh-annual Bob Cup Golf Tournament fundraiser for Clallam Mosaic will this year also honor Duncan’s brother-in-law David Dow, who passed away on Oct. 5, 2021, from complications of Down syndrome.

The tourney is slated for Saturday, July 30, at The Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course, 1965 Woodcock Road.

Memories run deep at the Dungeness course, organizers said, as Duncan’s father helped create the course in the early 1960s, and Duncan and Dow enjoyed much golf there.

Player check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. and the shotgun start is at 9 a.m.

Registration is $100 per player. The fee includes greens fee, cart, raffle ticket and food and beverage vouchers for the Snack Shack. Advanced registration is preferred.

Registration forms are available at Pre-payment and donations can securely be made through Mosaic’s Square page.

The winning team of players will take home the coveted “Bob Cup” for one year, with their names engraved for permanent recognition.

Additional opportunities to win include a long drive award; closest-to-pin awards on selected par 3 holes; and putting for wine on the practice green. Each golfer gets one raffle ticket towards winning one of the locally donated prizes. Additional raffle tickets will be available for purchase.

Shared pursuits

Duncan and Dow shared many similar interests, including airplanes, golfing, animals, driving golf carts, attending Dungeness Community Church, rooting on the Seahawks and their love for Mary Jane Dow Duncan.

When Duncan proposed to Dow’s sister Mary Jane, she told him, “David and I are a package deal. He will live with me someday.”

Dow did live with the Duncan family, coming to adore his late brother-in-law, family members said. Mary Jane said she remembers the relationship between her husband and brother as “sweet” and “wonderful.”

According to Mary Jane, Dow enjoyed classes, dances, being part of the Snappy Players theater group and other activities provided by Clallam Mosaic. It was this connection and engagement that inspired family conversations about how to support the organization, eventually leading Mary Jane to create Bob Cup Golf Tournament in memoriam.

Dow was a bright presence during the annual fundraising tournament, often providing a piece of art for the silent auction table, tourney organizers said. This year, both Dow and Duncan will be remembered by the sponsors, donors and golfers gathering to support friends and neighbors living with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
