41st Annual Slavic Invitational Golf Tournament

Tonight kicks off the 41st annual Slavic Invitational and to kick it off all the golfers gathered for a great meal.
The Slavic Invitational is the largest amateur golf tournament in the country. Over one thousand golfers will take part in the 41st annual tournament this weekend. The golfers will play at six different golf courses throughout south Mississippi. “Oh, just meeting people from all over the country. I had no idea until I actually started working it. I had no idea that it was such a big deal like it is. It’s supposed to be the largest amateur golf tournament in the U.S.,” said volunteer Zeljko Srsen.
All the food is prepared days in advanced by hundreds of volunteers. Some members of the Slavic community here in Biloxi and other non-members will pitch in as well. They will cook all the food the golfers will eat during the tournament, as well as provide all the drinks.
All the dinners will be served at the Beau Rivage. They say it’s the biggest event they host each year. The tournament will last three days and is sure to be a good time for all those participating. “This is my very first Slavic tournament. I’m so excited. It is beautiful weather down on the coast of Mississippi. Just having a blast,” said Ocean Springs resident Jay Schmidt.
