Beautiful weather and 67 competitive golfers graced the course of Lane Creek Golf Club in Bishop, Georgia, to benefit Georgia’s dairy youth on Friday, March 31. The 7th Annual GDYF Golf Tournament was held in memory of “Bud” Wiley, Jr., who was a dairy farmer and instrumental in organizing the first GDYF golf tournaments. Golfers began the four-person Lauderdale scramble tournament with a shotgun start at noon following a lunch sponsored by Chick-fil-a at Epps Bridge Parkway.
