Postponed: Walker Shank Memorial Golf Tourney

The 11th annual Walker Shank Memorial Golf Tournament will no longer take place on Saturday, April 11th at Chatmoss Country Club. The tournament has been indefinitely postponed due to the Coronavirus. We hope to reschedule for a Saturday in the fall.

Walker was an avid golfer throughout his life, and competed on the Martinsville High School varsity team four years. He took second place as an individual in the Region IV Tournament, finishing behind teammate Becky Poindexter. The Bulldogs won the Regional title that year, as well, and went on to finish second place in the state tournament.

The Walker Shank Memorial will feature a Captain’s Choice format with 4-person teams. The fee to play is $75 per player.  A four-man team costs $300 per team without mulligans, or $340 per team to get 2 mulligans per player. All golfers will be eligible for 2 closest to the pin prizes, a long-drive prize and a closest-to-the-line prize. Immediately after the tournament, we’ll have buffet-style meal at the club (outside if weather allows).
