Bowden to host "New Era" golf tournament

The Bowden Men's Golf Association will conduct the "New Era" Scholarship Golf Classic Aug. 6-7 at Bowden Golf Course.

According to a release, the event is a revival of a tournament first played in the 1960s. Past participants include Lee Elder, Jim Thorpe, Jim Dent, Walter Worthy and Walter Morgan.

The tournament will promote junior golf among those who otherwise would have little or no opportunity to learn, joining with groups like the Tiger Woods Foundation and the First Tee Initiative.
