The tournament will tee off Saturday, May 26 at 8 a.m. with golfers in six flights playing 18 holes a day through Memorial Day.

The tournament actually dates back to before World War II but this is the 58th continuous year for the event. 

Elks Lodge Pro Shop Manager Greg Cox - who is a past winner of the event himself - said that the course has rarely been in better shape than it will be this year.

"With the right amount of water, warm days and nights and our new fairway mowers, the course is in great shape," Cox said.

The tournament can host as many as 144 players. Anyone is welcome to sign up and play.

Defending champion Robby Komatcheet is expected to play again this year. Chris Wilson who has won the event eight times won't be able to make it back since he is still coaching at the University of Kansas.

The course record is a 63 but no one has broken a 67 (5 under par) during tournament play.
