It’s safe to assume that one of the most popular past time hobbies of several locals is the sport of golfing. So many residents, new and old, enjoy the golf courses here in this area. These courses have been around for many years and store fond memories to so many from years ago. Of these courses, the Beechfork Golf Club hosts an invitational tournament for these enthusiastic and dedicated players. Although several events have been either canceled or postponed this summer, there are still a select few planned events that can make safety precautions feasible while still choosing to carry out these events with some adjustment to the normalcy of certain procedures to assure safety. As many of you are already aware, golf is an outdoor sport that maintains a safe distance between players and with extra sanitation of equipment when necessary and so forth, fortunately, this sport can still be made possible despite the overwhelming cancellation of so many other future plans.
This tournament will take place on August 7th, 8th and 9th.
