The course was in very good playing condition thanks to Russell Bevelhymer, course manager, and Roger Henry, course superintendant. As always, Linda Hoover supervised the pro shop. Many other people spent countless hours in helping to prepare for another fun-filled weekend and special thanks goes out to each one who donated time and energy into our annual event. The Wewoka Golf Association proudly puts together this tournament led by Wayne Chambers, and is very appreciative of all the hole sponsors and donations given by surrounding businesses and local citizens and a special thank you to Dr. Gil Morgan for his gifts as well.
