8/18/2010 - KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. -- The patience and loyalty of Keesler golfers is being recognized with a free golf tournament and equipment demonstration at the new Bay Breeze Golf Course facility Aug. 26.

"We want to show our appreciation to our golfers," said Tom Golden, 81st Mission Support Group community services flight chief.

The new pro shop and snack bar, part of the Bay Breeze Events Center that opens Sept. 17, opened last week.

Since Hurricane Katrina slammed the base nearly five years ago and wiped out the golf facility, golfers managed with temporary structures for both the pro shop and cart barn.

There's a noon shotgun start for the tournament, with a select shot (scramble) format with four-person teams. Members have priority for the 20-team limit.

A golf equipment demonstration is planned from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Food and drinks are provided before and after the tournament, and prizes, drawings and giveaways are planned.

The pro shop and snack bar are open 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. daily.

For more information, call 377-3832.
