Golf Tournament a Hole-in-One for Economy
The City of Ocala is hosting the Harley Davidson of Ocala Classic, part of the NGA/Hooters Golf Tournament, at the Golden Hills Golf and Turf Club.
As 168 golfers get ready to compete, City and County officials hope the event will help boost the local economy.
More than one thousand spectators are expected to attend along with golfers, caddies, tournament staff and supporting vendors.
The Classic will have an economic impact of well over half a million dollars, according to Matthew Dunn of the Ocala/ Marion County Sports Commission.
The 72-hole championship will tee off on March 10th and will last through Sunday. Admission is free. For more information visit www.NGAHooterstour.com.
