Senior golf tour to again stop in Lake Placid

— The third annual Adirondack Senior Open golf championship, part of the Sunbelt Senior Tour, will again be held Aug. 26-30 at the beautiful Whiteface Club & Resort in Lake Placid.

The local tour event has quickly become one of the favorite stops of the touring professionals. With the overall hospitality of the people in Lake Placid, and the stern test of golf provided by the John Van Kleek and Walter Hagen-designed track, most of the professionals from 2012 will be back with quite a few new faces joining them.

The Sunbelt Senior Tour has been the training ground for Champions Tour players for almost 20 years. This tour, for players 45 years of age and older, has allowed for some of the top professional golfers in the country to visit smaller communities where amateur golfers can play with them in the pro-am on Aug. 27 and socialize with these professionals at the event’s many functions. It is truly an opportunity of a lifetime for many avid golf fans.

The tournament has an exciting change this year in that USA Luge will become the charitable beneficiary of all proceeds.

“USA Luge is local to Lake Placid and with the storied past of Lake Placid hosting two Winter Olympic Games, we cannot be more pleased to partner with USA Luge,” according to Tom Eubank, Tournament Director.
