Plans underway for Cherokee winter golf tourney

Monday, January 7, 2002

Hey golfers, join the 70-100 people that participate in the premier winter golf tournament of the Midwest!

You don't have to wait until spring to get some fresh air, exercise, and keep that swing grooved. Enter the 15th annual Off-Shore Masters Winter Golf Tournament.

The Off-Shore Masters is scheduled for Saturday, January 19, at Koser-Spring Lake Park in Cherokee. The tourney format includes a challenging nine-hole par-34 course, with the tees on land and the sand "greens" on frozen Spring Lake. Only 6-9 irons and putters are allowed for clubs, and colored balls are required.

There is a $15 green fee, with plaques awarded to the top three places, and cash prizes for all flight winners. Many drawings for door prizes will be held throughout the day.

The popular event played on frozen Spring Lake in Cherokee is sponsored by the Cherokee Parks and Recreation Department, Golf Etc., and other Cherokee area merchants.

The golf tourney is a fundraiser for the Cherokee Parks and Recreation Department's playground improvement fund.
