The 2013 Greatest Golfer of the Valley presented by Farmers National Bank is ready to tee off.
We will begin registrations on vindy.com beginning May 6.
We crowned 12 Greatest Golfers in 2012 from more than 500 golfers aged 12 to 74 who teed off. We have room for 600 golfers this year.
Our third Juniors installment tees off with Qualifier Play on May 25 at Pine Lakes and continuing through July at 5 other area courses — all leading to a finals match Sunday, July 28 at Trumbull Country Club.
Our adults will tee off at the end of August as usual, but with a couple of adjustments as we prep to host more than 300 players.
Super Seniors and Seniors will tee off on Tuesday, Aug. 20 and continue play on Friday, Aug. 23, with their championship round on Saturday, Aug. 24.
All other divisions will tee off Friday at Mill Creek, with tee times all day to accommodate work schedules.
Saturday play will spread out to Trumbull, Youngstown and Tippecanoe country clubs.
We are pleased to announce the addition of a fourth course to this Saturday lineup to allow more golfers to compete. Last year, we sold out of all of our tee times. We are thrilled that Oak Tree Country Club has joined our Greatest lineup.
We are excited to bring you a couple more additions that are still in the finalizing stages. Stay tuned.
