Weakley County Sports Hall of Fame Golf Scramble Rescheduled


In an effort to comply with local, state and The National Golf Course Superintendent Association of America’s guidelines, the Weakley County Sports Hall of Fame postponed the inaugural golf scramble once again.

The hopes of the WCSHOF is to conduct the event on June 25 at Persimmon Hills Golf Course in Sharon. Tee off is noon.

Executive Director John Hatler said, “Our hopes are to provide an opportunity to celebrate the creation of the hall in June. This event is to help raise funds for our scholarships for eight student-athletes in Weakley County through the golf scramble.”

One mission of the WCSHOF is to sponsor a $ 1,000 scholarship to a female and male student athlete from each of the four county high schools.

“The board is working to put together a plan for the upcoming year. Obviously, the first induction class and banquet need to be celebrated. Like everyone, we are working to figure things out in these unprecedented times.” Hatler said.

The original plans called for the inaugural class to be announced at the golf scramble in April, with the banquet in August. Hatler said he does not want to announce a first class, without a proper banquet date, time and place to celebrate the inductees, and board is working on plan.

A full board meeting is via Zoom in the coming weeks.
