Despite the nonexistence of a Corn Palace Invitational Committee, the annual CPI Golf Tournament in Mitchell will still be held.
This year’s tournament will take place Aug. 12-14 at Wild Oak Golf Club, with the first day being devoted to practice.
The 12th green at Wild Oak Golf Club is surrounded by water.
On one side, the Firesteel Creek has crept within about 12 feet of the pinhole, creating a soft, spongy surface.
A non-operating drainage pump rests on the other side while course officials wait for the water level to go down, right next to an overflow of water in the fairway.
ABERDEEN — A year after bringing the first South Dakota Golf Association title to Mitchell since the late 1920s, Brett Coluccio and Brett Abbotts lost out on their bid to defend that title over the weekend.
Dakotas Tour veteran Neil Johnson shot a 65 Friday at Wild Oak Golf Course to win the Martin Group Pro-Am over a group of nearly 48 professional golfers.
The tournament also included 48 amateur golfers from the Mitchell area. Josh Hartman fired a 2-under-par 70 to win the amateur title.
The annual Pro-Am event at Wild Oak Golf Club is in its fourth year this summer, but Wild Oak Director of Golf Chas Hurd is expecting today’s event to be the best yet.
He has plenty of reasons to be optimistic.
The Martin Group Pro-Am, a Dakotas Tour event that tees of with a shotgun start today at 11 a.m., will feature 48 professionals vying for a top prize of $4,000. Both those totals are up from last year, when Joe Ryon, a San Diego resident, took home a top prize of $1,500 in a field of 31 professional golfers.
Considering the back nine at Mitchell’s Lakeview Golf Course was built in 1974, club professional Dan Sabers admits it was a bit unusual that the top two scores in the course’s history were both posted in a two-week span earlier this spring.
Dakota Wesleyan University golfer Brett Abbotts became the first to shoot a 62 on the course on April 19, but only stood by himself until May 5, when teammate Tyler Evenson equaled the feat. Both men broke the old record by two strokes and became part of a growing national trend.
