Thursday’s heavy downpour, combined with today’s forecast of yet another deluge of heavy rain, forced officials to cancel today’s scheduled first round of the 40th Roanoke Valley Golf Hall of Fame men’s golf tournament at Mariners Landing in Huddleston.
The 54-hole men’s event will now be trimmed to a 36-hole affair. Blacksburg Country Club, scheduled to play host to Saturday’s second round, will now be the opening-round site. The tournament will conclude Sunday at Ole Monterey.
The 27th HOF women’s championship was unaffected since it’s a 36-hole event. The women join the men at Blacksburg for Saturday’s first round and will wind up Sunday at Ole Monterey.
It marks only the third time in HOF history that rain has curtailed the men’s event. The other two rain-shortened events occurred in 1996 and 2005.
