In the mid to late fifties, public facilities in Bowling Green, KY, as well as across the nation, began to open to all citizens. Former Bowling Green caddies made their way to the only public golf course in Bowling Green realizing a dream to openly play golf at "the Muni". Over the next 15 years, twosomes and foursomes began to ban together. As they fraternized, they began to talk about the possibilities a more organized group could offer. They decided to organize and chose the name "Par-Makers Golf Club" for their new enterprise. Their first tournament was held in August of 1963. Since that time, the tournament has provided an atmosphere of homecoming and reunion to all segments of the African-American community of Bowling Green. This video highlights the traditional Sunday afternoon trophy presentation on the tournament's 45th anniversary in August of 2008.
