Men’s Open needs more golfers

Men's Open golf tournament at Seven Hills Golf Club is in need of a few more golfers.

Seven Hills Golf Club’s Men’s Open tournament is in need of a few more golfers. “We have 34 people signed up so far,” said Clay Jones, pro shop coordinator. “But we’d like to get 60 people total.”

The open has been held every year since the 1980’s and is currently scheduled for Sept. 10-11.

The men’s open features 18 holes of stroke play each day, and “you have to have a handicap to play,” said Jones, adding that if you don’t have a handicap, you can still play with a zero.

Jones has been running the tournament since 1998 and he’s played in it every year since. “So far we have a few players returning who won the tournament previously,” said Jones.

The tournament features a prize table where you can win golf bags, golf balls, putters, wedges, and tablets. You also get two free meals courtesy of the Seven Hill’s restaurant. This year they are having ham and schnitzel.

What happens if it rains? “Play on,” said Jones. “We don’t stop it for the rain, so bring a raincoat.”

The men’s open can also use more volunteers for things like spotting the holes on par three’s, and volunteers get the same meals as the golfers. “It’s a good time, come out and enjoy the fun. You might win a prize,” added Jones.

To register to play in the men’s open, please contact Clay Jones at 250-949-9818.
