GREATEST GOLFER | Deadline is Wednesday; now 11 spots left

By phone, by mail, by internet — you can still get into the Greatest Golfer of the Valley tourney put on by The Vindicator and Farmers National Bank.

We're taking golfer signups until Wednesday at 4 p.m.

The 3-day "Greatest" tourney is Sept. 11, 12 and 18 at Mill Creek, Trumbull Country Club and The Lake Club. It's $100 to get in, and that fee covers your golf and carts for two rounds.

Yes --- it's a great deal. (Some golfers are calling thinking there are still greens fees to pay after the $100 entry fee. There are no more fees!)

If you want more "Greatest" info or want see more of the 100+ golfers who've already grabbed a seat on the "Greatest" bus, click here.

Deadline for signup is next Wednesday. Get signed up today. Email or call Editor Todd Franko at 747-1471, ext. 1253 or email at

if you're worried about work and Saturday dinners and such, tee times will start at 10 a.m. and continue through 2 p.m. or so. Play will be at Mill Creek on Saturday and Trumbull on Sunday.


When a guy's email address includes "makenbirdy," other golfers should take note.

That's Glenn Milton's email address, and he's in the hunt to be "Greatest Golfer of the Valley."

Milton is among the latest registrants as the overall "Greatest" field looks to cross the 100-golfer mark.

Milton is in the scratch division, playing out of Mill Creek Golf Course. Another recent registrant joining Milton in scratch is Price Gordon out of Flying B Golf Course.

The "regular guys" division (guys above a 12 handicap) beefed up a bit with Poland's Dennis Meli and Boardman's Rob Rule. Meli plays out of The Lake Club and Rule plays at Squaw Creek.
