Qualifying under way for 33rd annual WyCo Open

July 23, 2009

Qualifying is now under way for the 33rd annual Wyandotte County Open golf tournament, which will take place Aug. 8-9 at Sunflower Hills Golf Course.

The longest running tournament of its kind in the greater Kansas City area, it also is one of the largest with six men’s flights and two ladies flights. Entry is limited to the first 210 applicants. Tee times will be assigned and available on Aug. 6.

The tournament is open to all residents and patrons of Sunflower Hills. Cost is $90 per player and includes three rounds of golf — one qualifying round and two rounds of tournament play, along with lunch on Saturday, a post-tournament dinner on Sunday and a tee package provided by tournament sponsor Ron Mears/Appreciated Advertising. The Sunflower Hills Patron’s Club will play host to the hot dog lunch on Saturday while the post-tournament dinner on Sunday will be sponsored by Steph’s Snack Shop.

In addition to tournament play, Kansas City’s longest putt contest will be Saturday on the practice green adjacent to the clubhouse. Long drive contests and closest-to-the-hole prizes will be awarded.

Deadline to register is Wednesday, Aug. 5. Entry forms are available at the Sunflower Hills Pro Shop or by calling (913) 573-8570.
