Mayor's Cup Golf Tournament raises funds for junior golf programs & more

We'll tee it up for a great cause. The Mayor's Cup Tournament was held Saturday morning at Sonny Guy Municipal Golf Course. All proceeds go towards buying golf equipment along with helping to continue junior golf programs in the city.

The Jackson Parks & Recreation Department told us there was quite the demand for the event.

"The support was overwhelming," said Parks & Rec director Ison Harris Jr. "This year we had over 114 golfers. We had to turn down people at the last minute because we just had so many golfers that showed up and want to participate in this worthy cause. We want to get that group some dollars so they buy the proper equipment they need. So if they need extra clubs for kids, or extra training aids, or things like that. I think next year we're probably going to add an extra flight. It speaks to the community is really supportive and want to come out and support junior golf."
