On July 8, Tamer Win Golf Course in Cortland held its 18th annual boys pre-season golf tournament. 57 boys, ages 12-18 played the beautiful course as a qualifier for the Vindicator Farmers National Bank Greatest Jr. Golfer of the Valley Tournament, which is to be held July 31st at the Trumbull Country Club. Dominic Patella, James LaPolla, Joey Canann, and Bart Wyss qualified to move on to the next tournament.
Tamer Win also held the girls qualifying tournament on July 11th. It was the fifteenth year for the girl's tournament, and there were 54 participants, which was slightly fewer than past years due to the tournaments' close proximity to the fourth of July. Four girls qualified to move on to the Greatest Golfer of the Valley Tournament.
Tamer Win hosts several other tournaments throughout the year, including the Division One Girls Sectional during the regular golf season.
