BANGOR – It’s hard to compete with the drama of last year’s Maine Women’s Amateur Championship, with Ruby Haylock taking the crown in a playoff, but you never know what’s in store when golfers head to the Bangor Muni starting Monday.
The tournament will be a three day event held at the Bangor Muni in which spectators are welcome to attend.
Bangor Muni PGA Pro Rob Jarvis said that throughout the tournament, the Championship Course will be closed to the public until the early afternoon, but that the Kelly Nine will remain open throughout.
Maine has seen some rain recently, but overall, Jarvis and his team have worked to get the course in a good a shape as possible as the state’s top amateur women prepare for 54 holes.
“The golf course is in great shape even considering we’re in our second year of severe drought. Our superintendent Jonathan Burnett has just got the crew working as hard as they can and the golf course is ready, and I think the scoring will be reflective of that,” Jarvis said.
The tournament will last from July 19-21.
