Many of you have been wondering, now we can fill you in.
The 52nd edition of the NewsChannel 7 Golf Classic will be held July 26th-July 29th at Bull's Eye Country Club in Wisconsin Rapids.
But there's a new twist for qualifying for this year.
Rather than having individuals come out of the 43 different courses like they did last year, and in years past, there will be just 5 courses to qualify. 5 mini-tournaments across the region, at a course near you to play your way in.
Qualifying for the 2012 classic will be held at these 5 courses over 5 consecutive weekends in June and July:
Saturday, June 2-- The Ridges, Wisconsin Rapids
Sunday, June 10-- Pine Valley, Marathon
Sunday, June 17-- Eagle River, Eagle River
Sunday, June 24-- Foxfire, Waupaca
Sunday, July 1-- Timber Ridge, Minocqua
Unlike in years past, if you don't make the cut at one course, you can qualify out of another. Just contact one of these local courses for more info.
This new way of qualifying will hope to be even more organized and add a little pizazz as tourney director Buck Welsh told me.
