Registration is now closed for the 23rd Annual Golf Classic to be held at the Fort Golf Course on Sunday, September 28th.   With more than the maximum number of players allowed by the course, the tournament is a sell-out.   We appreciate the enthusiasm of those who have registered early as well as the support of the many sponsors.  It is the first time in the twenty-three year history of the Golf Classic that registration has closed early, and we’re thrilled with the response.   We regret to inform those who have not yet registered and appreciate your understanding.
