Planning for annual classic underway



The annual Amos Martin Invitational Golf Tournament, a mainstay at the Washington-Wilkes County Club for more than 86 years, will be played the weekend following Independence Day, July 9-10. Golfers are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible to participate in the event. “We’re hoping to have a full tournament of 80 players,” planner Hugh Hopkins said. “With the recent rains, the course has really come along and by July 9 should be in great shape.” Last year’s winner, Graham Echols, who is one of only three four-time champions, is poised to lead the field and become the only five-time champ. He has won the tournament four of the last five years. Call the pro shop at 706-678-2046 for more information.
