Wednesday, December 28, 2005

Popular winter golf attraction in Cherokee is January 21

The annual Off-Shore Masters Winter Golf Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, January 21, at Koser-Spring Lake Park in Cherokee, sponsored by the Cherokee Parks & Recreation Department.

The 19th annual funfest averages between 70-100 golfers taking to the frozen links, with the sand "greens" located on frozen Spring Lake, and the tees on dry land.

The tourney format includes a challenging 9-hole, par-34 golf course, with only irons 6 through 9, and putters allowed for clubs. Colored golf balls also are required.

There is a $15 greens fee,m with plaques awarded to the top three places, and cash prizes for all flight winners. Drawings for door prizes will be held throughout the day and food is available in the expanded Yacht Club.

The popular winter attraction - the premier winter golf tourney in the Midwest - is also sponsored by Golf Etc., and many other Cherokee merchants.

Proceeds from this season's tournament will benefit the new Gillette Park playground.

Call 225-2715, or email to book your tee time, and for any questions. Golfers also are asked to dress in their favorite sports team attire to liven up the festivities even more.
