t is with much excitement that we announce a modified tournament and Pro Am schedule upcoming in May. With the Governors Phase 1 directive announced last week, our WMC Board of Directors presented a very detailed event operations schedule and proposal to the Section Board at the end of last week. Ultimately the plan was approved and we are ready to play some tournament golf in the coming weeks, with the hopes of being back to our normal schedule the first of June.
The main goal is to run a successful event that is not only efficient but safe for our Chapter Staff, you the professional and your families, and your membership and Pro Am teammates. With that being said, we are going to have a Regional Match Play Championship and ease into our Pro Am schedule with a 1 Pro 1 Am. This will help limit large group travel and make it easier to follow the Social Distancing guidelines that we have recently become accustom to.
Championship and Pro Am details and registration links are below. Sign up Today!
