Snow forces cancellation of golf tournament

Sunday, March 01, 2009

A decision was reached by the Grover Page Classic tournament committee and Jackson Country Club staff to go ahead and cancel the tournament for this year at Jackson Country Club.

The snow is not melting nearly fast enough to get the course ready for even a Tuesday only 18-hole tournament there, so rather than make everyone wait around, a decision to cancel was made now. The host course received eight inches of snow Saturday night.

The Bisons golf team had been scheduled to play in the tournament, hosted by Tennessee-Martin, Monday and Tuesday.
