Owensboro Set to Host Junior Golf Tournaments at Local Courses
Several junior golfers will descend upon Owensboro this weekend for two big tournaments.
This Friday, June 15th, Ben Hawes Golf Course will host the Kentucky PGA Junior Tour Tournament and on Monday, the 18th, Hillcrest Golf Course will be the site of the GO Junior Series.
As the name indicates, the Kentucky PGA Junior Tour Tournament is for Kentucky juniors, ages 8 to 18. There will be 13 different divisions of both boys and girls.
Owensboro's Griffin Payne and Daniel Love are currently ranked in the top 20 in the boys' division while Emma Payne is ranked 9th in the girls' division.
On Monday, nearly 100 juniors from southern Indiana and Western Kentucky will play in the GO Junior Series, the longest running junior tournament on the series schedule.
Ben Hawes will have available tee times and be open to the public on Friday but Hillcrest will be closed for the tournament Monday, although Business League will still compete that evening.
If need more information about these golf tournaments, please call the City of Owensboro's Recreation Manager, Chris Cary, at 270-687-7134.
