6-17-12: Courtesy of WIVB. The best professional and amateur golfers in the world battled over the weekend for America’s top golf prize at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. But 100 years ago, that same tournament was played right here in western New York. The Grover Cleveland Golf Course, known a century ago as the Buffalo Country Club, is one of the few courses that can claim they held the championship. County Executive Mark Poloncarz not only plays the course regularly, he’s also a bit of a western New York golf historian. To commemorate the 100th anniversary, a tournament will be held for the best golfers in Erie County on July 7th and 8th. The event is open to those with +8 handicaps and below. Free lessons are available for those who, like most, do not have a single digit handicap.
