In an effort to comply with local, state and The National Golf Course Superintendent Association of America’s guidelines, the Weakley County Sports Hall of Fame has postponed the inaugural golf scramble once again.
The hopes of the WCSHOF is to still conduct the event, and it will be held June 25, at Persimmon Hills Golf Course in Sharon. Tee off will be at 12 p.m.
“Our hopes are to provide an opportunity to celebrate the creation of the hall in June,” executive director John Hatler said, “This event is to help raise funds for our scholarships for eight student-athletes in Weakley County through the golf scramble.”
One mission of the WCSHOF is to sponsor a $1,000 scholarship to a female and male student-athlete from each of the four county high schools.
“The board is working to put together a plan for the upcoming year,” Hatler said. “Obviously, the first induction class and banquet need to be celebrated. Like everyone, we are working to figure things out in these unprecedented times.”
The original plans called for the inaugural class to be announced at the golf scramble in April, with the banquet in August.
Hatler said he does not want to announce a first class, without a proper banquet date, time, and place to celebrate the inductees, and the board is working on plan.
A full board meeting is scheduled, via Zoom, in the coming weeks.
