Why are we retiring The Pops?

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to retire the Pops Memorial Junior Golf Tournament. Through the past 10 years we have been blessed with many wonderful memories seeing the course filled with excited families playing the game we all love. it has been an incredible ride. 

The smile on each junior golfer's face as they walk proudly through the course with their parent or grandparent as their caddie has been amazing. The family time we get to bring to you one on one when they feel so special and all attention on them is priceless. Their beaming faces as they accept those big trophies, seeing the caddie bibs with their last names, or celebrating their best shots all brings overwhelming joy to our hearts. 

We have been fortunate to be able help some great kids continue their education with the Lonnie "Pops" Terry Memorial Scholarships handed out each year. We have handed out over $10,000 in scholarships! isn't that crazy? None of this would have been remotely possible without your continued support. 

We have tried to show our love for you, junior golf, and the idea of having fun as family through "The Pops" and make it a time each junior golfer wants for nothing. Without your support and taking time out of your busy schedule for your child, this would not have been possible. We thank you for making our dreams come true and helping leave a legacy in honor of our Pops. 

There is a season for everything and the season for the tournament has been amazing. We simply wouldn't trade the last 10 years for anything. While "The Pops" tournament may be retiring, we hope you and your junior golfer have memories that last a lifetime. We wish you the very best and will miss getting to see you and your family. You will always have a special place inn our hearts and we hope "The Pops" will always be in yours. 

Thank you for understanding, always supporting, and becoming a part of the Pops family. 

The Lonnie "Pops" Terry Family
