GALLIPOLIS, Ohio — The young men and women playing in the Frank Capehart Tri-County Junior Golf League are a hardy bunch. However, Mother Nature showed who the boss really was Thursday morning at the scheduled tournament to be played at the Cliffside Golf Course.
Actually, in spite of the heavy rains that fell early Thursday morning, the golf course was very playable and the young ones teed off at approximately 9:30 a.m.. About an hour later, the rains returned washing out the days play.
Thursday’s tournament has been rescheduled for Wednesday, June 26, at the Cliffside Golf Course. All players who paid the entry fee for Thursday’s outing will not be charged to play on the 26th. Lunch, because it was available after the rain stopped play Thursday, will not be served on the 26th.
All other scheduled Tri-County Junior Golf Tournaments will be played as scheduled. Next week’s play will be at the Meigs County Golf Course in Pomeroy, Ohio. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., with play starting at 8:50 a.m.
