Ozark Gateway announces 2019 golf tournament results

HORSESHOE BEND — The Ozark Gateway Tourist Council fourth annual golf tournament, recently held at the Turkey Mountain Golf Course in Horseshoe Bend, was a huge success, said Cathy Drew, Ozark Gateway’s executive director. “Not only was it a perfect day weather-wise, especially in August, but we were also able to raise over $10,000 for additional tourism promotion for the eight counties in northcentral Arkansas we represent,” Crystal Crow, region president, said.

“Because of how we structure our payouts to winners, I think this tournament is fast becoming one players like to play in as the odds of winning cash and prizes are really good. This year we had three flights and the third place teams still broke even on their entry fees. That’s an incentive to play,” said Charlie Morris, Ozark Gateway board secretary.
