Lakeview Golf Course is hoping for a great turnout and some good weather this weekend as it hosts the Jimmy Sandusky Memorial Tournament on Saturday and Sunday.
The tournament is set to tee off with a shotgun start on Saturday with tee times at 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and will conclude with the same tee times on Sunday. According to Lakeview general manager Richie Camp, the tournament should enjoy a big turnout.
The two-person scramble has 72 teams signed up to participate this weekend and will probably be broken into six flights.
The first place winning team in each flight will win a $500 gift certificate. Second place will win $300 and third place will take home a $200 gift certificate.
The course is also providing food for the golfers on both days with catfish on Saturday and chicken on Sunday. The tournament will also provide free drinks throughout the weekend for the competitors.
The tournament, which is in its 15th year, is held in honor of Jimmy Sandusky who ran the course in the 60s and 70s. According to Camp, this tournament is usually big for the course.
Hopefully, the weather will hold off for the golfers and the tournament can enjoy great success. "It looks a little worse than we hoped," said Camp of the weather forecast. "Hopefully, the weather will hold out for us."
Several other local golf courses will also hold tournament in the upcoming weeks.
Ponta Creek Golf Course at the Meridian Naval Air Station will be hosting a two-person senior scramble on Aug. 12 with a shotgun start at 9 a.m.
The Clarke County Chamber of Commerce Fifth Annual Golf Tournament will be held the following week on Aug. 21. The tournament will be at the Cedar Creek Golf Course at Quitman Country Club.
On Aug. 7-8, the Cedar Creek Golf Course will also host a three-person scramble with tee times at 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. each day.
Finally, Briarwood will hold its 18th Annual Mixed Scramble on Aug. 7-8 with tee times at 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. each day.
