New tournament options for county golf tourney this year

44th FD Ford event offering Legends division, women’s 2-player best shot

Exciting changes are coming to the 44th annual Fort Dodge Ford Lincoln Toyota Webster County Golf Tournament this year.

For the first time, a “Legends” Division will be offered on both the men’s and women’s side for players age 70 and older. This will flank the traditional open, senior (age 50-59) and super senior (age 60-69) championship brackets for individual 36-hole stroke play on Saturday, July 13, and Sunday, July 14 at the Fort Dodge Country Club and Lakeside Golf Courses.

The women’s competition will also feature a new two-person best shot on July 13 at Lakeside. This is an alternative to the individual bracket, which is still being offered. Players would choose which event — the 36-hole individual tournament or the 18-hole best shot tourney — to enter beforehand.

Tee times will be set in nine-minute increments on the men’s side, beginning at 7:30 a.m. on July 13 at the FDCC. Women’s tee times start at 8 a.m. at Lakeside on the 13th.

Cost is $85 per player for the 36-hole, two-day tournament, or $40 per player for the women’s two-person best shot.

The championship nine for both the men’s open and senior divisions will be at approximately 5:30 p.m. on July 14 at Lakeside.

Groups are asked to sign up either by phone or in person beginning Monday at their respective designated courses. Players must pre-pay.

All citizens who either live or work in Webster County are invited to participate.

For more information or to sign up, please call the FDCC (515-955-8551) or Lakeside (515-576-6741).
