Another covid19 casualty. Unfortunately the Tri State Tournament is being postponed until 2021.
After much discussion and deliberation, I regret that we will have to postpone this years Tri State tournament until 2021.
A number of factors have gone into making this decision. At this time, our state is on shutdown and we are instructed to stay in place. Our Vermont governor isn’t even allowing Hotel reservations before Monday June 15th. This would affect anyone who wanted to travel over for a practice round before our scheduled tournament.
No one can predict how golf courses will be required operate even when we are allowed to play. Some form of social distancing will likely be in place for the near future and our players health and safety is foremost important to us.
The spirit of Tri States would be greatly diminished if we all can’t gather together, enjoying the competition and opportunity to get to know each other.
We look forward to hosting the 2021 Tri States tournament and we will be in touch when we have secured a venue and date.
We appreciate your understanding and hope everyone stays safe and healthy as we all try to cope with this awful pandemic.
