We’re excited for the third year of Greatest Golfer of the Valley, and hope you are too.
SOME HINTS about this year:
-- Farmers National is still making this happen.
-- We’re still at The Lake, Trumbull, Youngstown and Mill.
-- Tippecanoe CC and The Salem Golf Club have joined the team.
-- MyLoopCard has, too. Watch for Greatest on those fantastic scorecards and also on MyLoop’s new Valley golf discount card for 12 Valley courses on sale NOW on vindy.com.
CHECK OUT these cool Greatest changes:
-- All Greatest golf starts at Mill Creek on Aug. 24. That’s 250+ Greatest Golfers in one place at one time. We’ll have so much fun, they’ll give us our own cable channel.
-- LIVE SMARTPHONE SCORING at select sites and at the The Lake Club finals.
JUNIORS — we love ya too:
-- The three 2011 qualifiers at Tamer Win, Tam O’Shanter and Diamondback will be joined by qualifiers at Pine Lakes, Salem and Mohawk Trails. That’s 6 qualifiers!!!
The dates are: Pine, 5/20; Mohawk, 6/9; Salem, 6/18; Tam O, 6/27; Diamondback, 7/2 (girls) & 5 (boys); and Tamer Win, 7/13 (girls) & 16 (boys) ....
-- We added a division for 12, 13 and 14-year-olds.
-- Trumbull CC will play host to the top 48 qualifiers on Saturday, July 21.
OK — that’s enough for now.
All of this info and more goes live on vindy.com on May 6 (or thereabouts!!).
Tell lots of people. Greatest was 92 golfers in 2010; it was 300 golfers in 2011 .... Our youngest was 12; our oldest was 78 (he said ...)
Can you help us get to 500 golfers in 2012?
We’re looking for Greatest helpers, too. ..... We’re seeking some event sponsors and also some event volunteers. If you can direct people our way, please do.
