Birch Park is a great course with some challenging holes. The town of Amherst Parks and Rec. Dept. headed by Craig Fraley, are always working on the course and making new improvements.

We will be using live scoring for this tournament which should help move things right along when it comes to adding up all the scores . Your code will be given to you during the player meeting. As you can see there are a large number of players for this tournament so this will help move things along. Your patience will be appreciated.
