Cherokee Valley Golf Tournament Results
The Upstate SC Chapter of the Amateur Players Tour rolled into Cherokee Valley Course and Club with a lot of excitement. As the day progressed, players were here hit with a steady 20-30 mph wind that caused high scores and some lost balls. The sunshine gave a warm feeling even with the wind and the course was in great shape.
