It’s time again for the Art Rich 7th Annual Salute to Veterans golf tournament. On May 21 the Whispering Oaks Golf Course in Marshfield will host the tournament. Originally organized by the late Art Rich, the golf tournament was created as a way to support veterans.
“Art had this idea eight years ago-we had to skip 2020, he sat down with us (Bonnie, club house manager and Kevin, superintendent) and wanted to do a tournament that would benefit and honor the veterans. He wasn’t even a veteran, but he wanted to honor them,” shared Bonnie. “It stood out to us because he wasn’t even a veteran. Art passed away last year, but we (Kevin and I) promised him that as long as we were here at the golf course we would continue the tournament.”
“This year we were joined by Todd Clark and he has joined with the local auxiliary and VFW doing the community thing-getting out the flyers, getting businesses. This year all of the proceeds from the tournament and the hole sponsors will be going to the Webster Co. VFW Post 4101 Veterans Relief Fund, so it’s all staying local this year,” explained Bonnie.
There are currently 52 teams of golfers signed up for this tournament. Any interested golfers can still register up until Friday May 20 by contacting email@example.com or call the clubhouse at 417-859-4470.
