Volunteers sought for college golf tournament, Junior Golf Forum offered at Sage Run

WILSON — Volunteers are being sought to help during the inaugural Island Resort Intercollegiate golf tournament to be held at Sage Run Golf Club at the Island Resort & Casino on Sept. 1-2.

Volunteers are needed in a variety of areas, similar to the ways they assisted at Symetra Tour professional women’s tournaments that have been held at the nearby Sweetgrass Golf Club.

There will also be a Junior Golf Forum for youth golfers held in conjunction with the 10-team NCAA Division I collegiate tourney that includes Division II Northern Michigan University.

The junior forum will be held from 9-10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 31, at Sage Run. It’s designed for young golfers and their parents to learn about college golf and talk to a panel of college coach and current and/or former players.

To sign up for the Junior Golf Forum, visit the course website at www.islandresortgolf.com or email to islandresortjunior forum@gmail.com.

College teams will practice at the course on Aug. 31, and that and the tournament welcome spectators who can watch for free.
