Tuesday, August 8. Inaugurated last year undee the sponsorship Of the Charles[ Town Race Track, who put up l the bulk of the prize monies, the Classic became the richest stop on the Middle Atlantic pro-am  tour overnight. The 36-hole event will follow closely last year's format which produced the outstanding golf event ever held in the panhandle area. Dave Leonard, tour- nament director for the Middle Atlantic P.G.A. has set up three separate tournaments which will be conducted in the Classic. Pro-" sweeps and amateur prizes for each individual round and pro- sweeps and amateur prizes awarded on the :36-hole per- formance. Golf professionals will play with different amateur teatns each day. Ties will share position prizes and there will be no playoffs in any category. Amateurs receive their full handicaps in the individual net but only 70 percent of their handicap for the net team. Dr. Marshall Glenn, who once again is donating the use of his Sleepy Hollow golf facility for this (harity affair, has the course in tiptop shape for the invasion of professionals and amateurs. Extensive im- provements have been com- pleted in time for the Classic, tournament", said Bogus, "Everything is on schedule for the two-day event. The greens are looking and putting beautifully, all the traps have been refurbished and all the now young trees and surrounding areas are being manicured" added Bogus. Pugh expects some of the best rounds to be played over the local course to emerge from this year's outing. Amateurs will be playing for more than $4,500 in prizes and premiums, with the professionals participating for the major portion of the $15,000 total monies. All proceeds of the tournament will go to the Eastern' Panhandle Training Center and the Jefferson County Charities, Inc. Last year's Classic netted the Eastern Panhandle Training Center more than $15200. All players and their ladies will be guests at cocktails and dinner at the Charles Town Turf Club Monday night and at a cocktail party and awards program Tuesday night. The Charles Town Classic has become a total project with the merchants and business men of Jefferson County and with support of many generous contributions from neighboring communities, and the outlook for the golf extravaganza in the future is a rather rosy picture, tournament officials report.
