Golfers began the tournament with a ‘Burton Creek Medical Clinic/Ozarks Healthcare/Westgate Realty/Simmons Bank’ lunch and took warm ups on the ‘West Plains Bank & Trust Company Driving Range and Putting Green’. Each golfer received a Remax Connection Tournament swag bag as well as a sleeve of golf balls provided by Central Trust Company, an official Caddyshack Classic coozie compliments of Justin Shelby – State Farm Insurance as well as delicious cupcakes from Sugar Lily Bakery & Floral from our friends at Assurance Realty.
