Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) August 08, 2012
This week, over 400 youth golfers and their families have enjoyed the 42nd Annual Everett Vinzant/John Cosnotti Memorial Junior Golf Tournament. The exciting three day event ran Monday, August 6th, through Wednesday, August 8th. The tournament represents all that is correct about the great game of golf. One of golf's challenges in recent years, and those to come, resides in the phrase "growing the game." The City of Overland Park is extremely proud of this tournament and the many other junior programs the Overland Park Golf Division provides.
In its 42nd year, the Vinzant/Cosnotti Memorial Junior Golf Tournament at the (Sykes/Lady) Overland Park Golf Club still provides the same lifetime memories and friendships created as it did so many years ago. Past participants, and now parents of many junior golfers today are excited to pass down this experience to their children.
Mr. Vinzant and Mr. Cosnotti established and funded the tournament in 1971 to make golf available to thousands of area juniors. Their commitment to junior golf is represented by the long standing support of the City of Overland Park in carrying their efforts forward and re-naming of the event in 1997 to commemorate these two fine Golf Professionals.
The Overland Park Golf Division is proud to provide numerous opportunities for junior golfers in the community, and has a driving focus to make the Vinzant/Cosnotti Memorial Junior Golf Tournament the cornerstone of those efforts.
