Playoff golf is underway in Havre, and soon, league champions will be crowned at courses like Prairie Farms, Beaver Creek and the Chinook Golf Club.
But before the men’s league playoffs continue tonight at Prairie Farms, the high school golfers will take to the course today for the 18-hole Havre High Golf Tournament. The tournament will feature 25 Havre High boys and girls, as well as varsity and junior varsity golfers from Browning and Lewistown. Today’s tourney is one of three times HHS golfers will get to play in Havre this season. The Blue Ponies also host the Havre Invitational Sept. 14 at Beaver Creek, as well as the Central A Divisional Tournament Sept. 28 at Prairie Farms.
Good luck to all of the Blue Ponies out for golf, and have a great season.
