Hastings Open Golf Tournament deadline quickly approaching
The Hastings Open is back for another year.
This year's 36-hole event will take place Saturday, June 27 and Sunday, June 28.
Saturday will be played at the Southern Hills Golf Course, and Sunday will take place at the Lochland Country Club.
The deadline to sign up for the tournament is Sunday, June 21. You can register in person at either course, and at Hastings Five Points Bank, or on the Hastings Tribue
The tournament costs $75, which is an incredible deal to play 18-holes at both courses.
This year the tournament is recognized by the Nebraska Golf Association, meaning players can earn points to get in to other tournaments, and that all players across the state are welcome to play.
"A men's division, a women's division, and if we have enough which we always have, a senior men's division as well. Again the prize pool is meaningful. If you finish in the top four you're going to get your money back. It's just a recreational competitive event," Sponsor and organizer Terry Anstine said.
Each golfer will be paired up with golfers that have a similar handicap as them for both days.
Anstine said there's no reason to feel embarrassed if you play bad, no one will know your score. Only the top five scores from each division will be announced.
