ENDICOTT (WBNG)– Finishing touches are in full swing at En-Joie Golf Club ahead of the 50th Annual Dick’s Sporting Goods Open.
A group of nearly 500 volunteers and staff members have been working hard to prepare for the tournament and complete the finishing touches at the course.
Event preparations include a variety of things from course maintenance to transportation and food concessions.
“It’s the maintenance crew making sure that the course is ready for 81 of the best professionals,” Tournament Director John Karedes said. “Myself, my staff, and the volunteers make sure everything from transportation for the players to the driving range and food preparation is all coming together as we get ready for a great week.”
The tournament was canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic and John Karedes said this is a week of golf that Broome County has been looking forward to since 2019.
The annual DSGO tournament runs Monday, June 28 through Sunday, July 4.
