The 15th annual DICK'S Sporting Goods Open is less than two months away and we can't wait. Last year, they celebrated their 50th year of professional golf in our community but with Covid restrictions, it wasn't the celebration that we were all looking forward to but it looks like they are going to make up for it this year.

The DICK'S Sporting Goods Open will celebrate its 15th year of the PGA Tour Champions at En-Joie Golf Course from August 15th to August 21st. There are some new events this year along with the return of one of our favorite country bands.

New this year is "Birdies for Cancer" where every birdie made during the tournament benefits the UHS and Lourdes Hospital Foundations. Because together, we can sock out cancer.
