History of J-W Golf Tournament

(take a break and sing to the ballad of the Beverly Hillbillies tune)


Come and listen to a story over thirty years ago,

A challenge came around to a group of young fellows.

Just a friendly game of golf, with no hidden mystery…

Then a tournament got started and the rest is history!


Golf that is, four-man-scramble, Tee-time!


Well the next thing you know, folks spread the word around,

And for the past thirty years families came from out of town.

He said “Pack up the kids, we’re gonna have some fun”,

She said, “It will be great, we’ll get to meet everyone!”


Fellowship, that is, camaraderie, family style!


Well, now times have changed and things are a little tough,

Folks get busy with lots of other stuff,

But it’s time to get back to some old fashion fun,

You’ll be glad that you did when it’s all said and done!


Fun, that is, for beginners and pro’s, give it a swing!


So now is the time, join us and be part of the history,

Strike a pose for the camera and golf your way to victory,

Ya'll are invited, to the annual locality,

Come on out and enjoy some J-W hospitality!


Tournament time that is, Old School, Put on your golf shoes!


Ya’ll come back now, ya hear?
