Barbour Chamber golf tournament postponed

PHILIPPI — Joe Kaiser, chairman of the Barbour County Chamber of Commerce Golf Committee, announced that the annual golf tournament scheduled for the Barbour Country Club on May 2 has been postponed due to the current pandemic.

The annual golf tournament, he said, will be re-scheduled, possibly in the fall. Hole sponsorships continue to be invited in order to underwrite academic scholarships presented to two Philip Barbour graduates each year.

The tournament will offer a $10,000 cash prize for a hole-in-one and cash prizes for the winning team and runners-up. Special prizes will also be awarded for the longest drive, longes putt and closest to the pin. A shot-gun start at 10 a.m. will kick off the local charity tournament. Lunches will be provided by Broaddus Hospital, Kaiser said.

Further information may be obtained from the Chamber at 101 College Hill Dr. in Philippi or by calling 304-457-1958. The website is www.barbourchamber.org.
