New Salisbury Inv. begins Aug. 4
The 40th New Salisbury Golf Course Invitational tournament, presented by Cleveland Golf and Srixon, will be Aug. 4 and 5.
Participants will have a chance to become a millionaire with a closest-to-the-pin/hole-in-one contest. The three closest-to-the-pin participants from Saturday’s round on hole 2/11 will have a chance at a 200-yard shot Sunday after the tournament is complete. The closest-to-the-hole out of those three wins $1,000 cash. And, if someone makes the shot, they win $1 million.
The number of tournament flights will be determined by the number of entries. The cost is $100 and includes a practice round (cart not included; cost is $10), two rounds of golf (cart included), two chicken dinners on Saturday and a tee prize.
The barbecue chicken dinner will be served from noon until 7 p.m. Saturday and additional dinners can be purchased in the pro shop for $7 for adults and $5 for children.
Five places in each flight will receive a prize (first, $350 cash; second, $200; and third, $150). The format is a 36-hole medal play unless inclement weather shortens the tournament. The field is limited to the first 120 entries, and all amateurs are eligible to play.

The course will also have a shoot-out Thursday, Aug. 2, at 6 p.m. and a Cleveland Demo Day Friday, Aug. 3, from 3:30 to 6 p.m. The regular Friday night scramble will begin at 6.
