Golfers grabbed their golf clubs and hit the green today for a big tournament.
The 45th annual Slavic Invitational is now underway at five locations across the Mississippi Coast, including Windance and Fallen Oak.
Participants play as two-person teams over 18 hole courses in various flights and compete for first, second, and third place prizes courtesy of the Beau Rivage.
Jay Vollmuth with the Slavic Benevolent Association says the event is a way for golfers to connect and make friendships. “A lot of golfers, when they golf one time, they end up bringing somebody with them next year. It goes on and on from there.”
Over 500 teams are participating in this year’s tournament, which wraps up on Sunday.
