The online Slammer Tour registration process has begun for Executive Golf’s major EG Opener tournament on May 24 at The Marshes Golf Club.

“Usually half of the 144 participants are Slammers,” said Andy Rajhathy, vice-president of ClubEG. “Although it's treated like a regular event for Slammers, it really is a big one. Doggies and skins will be worth oodles.”

The Slammer Tour members will hit the course with fellow EG members, non-members and guests who are all invited to shoot 18 holes on one of the capital region’s premium tracks. The field will follow up their rounds by sitting down to a tasty dinner and prize party. Vegetarian options will be made available.
