Tournament`s move to fall good news for business

MADISON – Business leaders say cooler weather, better golfers, a bigger purse and more fans means more money pumped into the local economy when the Southern Farm Bureau Golf Classic (formerly sponsored by Deposit Guaranty National Bank) is played next fall – a year earlier than expected.

Originally slated for a change of dates in the fall of 2000, the golf tournament that started with humble beginnings in 1968 at Hattiesburg with a $20,000 purse, will lure golf stars to Annandale Country Club in Madison with a $1.5 million purse.
