The boys’ and girls’ golf 2A Championships are coming to Owensboro on Sept. 19-20, bringing 144 golfers to the Country Club of Owensboro.
“Sports tourism continues to produce for Owensboro as does our relationship with the Kentucky 2A Board of Directors,” said Mark Calitri, Visit Owensboro President & CEO. “We can’t say thank you enough for their partnership and continued belief in Owensboro to provide a first-class state tournament for their schools’ student-athletes.”
Dane McLaird, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer at the Country Club, said they are excited to welcome the 2A Championship to the club and community.
“Our involvement with growing the game and promoting local junior golf events in the greater Owensboro community has always been a commitment from our club and membership,” he said. “We look forward to hosting these student athletes at our facility and wish all the competitors the best of luck.”
Visit Owensboro will host the 2A Championships for volleyball on Sept. 17-18, and the 2A Championships for boys’ and girls’ soccer on Sept. 18-19. In 2022, they’ll host the 2A Championships for boys’ and girls’ basketball on January 13-16.
“Our mission is to give 2A school student-athletes the opportunity to compete for a state championship against student-athletes from similar size schools,” said Jeremy Tackett, 2A Board of Directors Chair. “Owensboro continues to be the place we want to send our athletes. It hosts world-class facilities and the tournaments are top-notch.”
