The 42nd annual Abby’s/Budweiser/Pepsi Chapman Invitational golf tournament began on Saturday at Roseburg Country Club.
A total of 304 golfers — 152 two-player teams — are taking part in RCC’s largest tournament of the year.
“The scores are pretty good, about where I thought they’d be,” RCC head pro Cris Risley said late Saturday afternoon. “The course is in its best shape of the year. We had 111 trees (on the course) knocked down by the storm (in late February), but Richard (Weight, the greens superintendent) and his guys have done a great job getting it in tournament shape.”
First-round results were not available due to an early press deadline. The tournament wraps up Sunday.
