Barfly Open golf tournament slated

LAKE PLACID — The Barfly Open is slated for Tuesday, Sept. 13 at the Lake Placid Club Links Course.

The two-person scramble, which begins with a 10 a.m. shotgun start, benefits the Tri-Lakes Humane Society. The organization’s goals are to ultimately connect needy, deserving pets with loving families and make sure their animals are evaluated, fed, spayed and neutered.

Last year’s event generated nearly $7,000 for the region’s four-legged residents. A total of $32,000 has been raised over the past seven years for the humane society.

Last year’s event saw Denis Chagnon and Chris Jacob, the oldest team in tournament history, prevail at the Whiteface Club and Resort in Lake Placid.

Each participating team must have a combined handicap of at least 20. The registration fee is $85 per person and includes golf, cart, skins game and a post-tournament awards party at Wiseguys Sports Bar and Grill on School Street in Lake Placid.

Tournament organizers John and Marie Morgan of JFM Sports Inc. ask all players to pre-register by calling 518-524-6757, or email jfminc@roadrunner.com.
