52ND ANNUAL GREATER STRATFORD OPEN – Hello golfers! It’s that time of year and once again the RiverEdge Course is in great shape! The details for the 52nd GSO are; it’s going to be held on Sunday, June 27th, with a shotgun start at 9am @ RiverEdge Golf Course in Marshfield. For those of you that are unfamiliar with our event, it’s a singles (play you own score) tournament and you must have a tie to the Stratford Community to participate (residents, former residents, employees of a Stratford business). Cost of the event is $70 per player ($35 for members), this includes; your golf, golf cart, hole prizes, awards and meal to follow held @ RiverEdge. Proceeds from the event will go to a scholarship for a 2022 Stratford High School graduate. I’m proud to say the last 3 years we raised enough money to grant a $250 scholarship each year and with your help we hope to meet or exceed that again this year! Please call or text me (715-650-7781) to sign up or if you have any questions. More information is available here.
