“This tournament is one of the most anticipated events of the year in the Mercer County community,” said Mercer County Executive Brian M.

The tournament begins with a “shotgun” start at noon in the Shamble format. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. Cost is $150 per player and includes greens fees, carts, lunch, dinner, and use of the practice range. Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third low-team gross, men’s and women’s long drives, and “closest to the pin” on all par-3s.
