High-level golf is returning to Forsyth this weekend as the Symetra Tour invades central Illinois this weekend. 

 

Played at Hickory Point Golf Course Friday through Sunday, Forsyth Classic coordinator Cindy Deadrick-Wolfer says this is one of the early steps for female professional golfers to get on the LPGA Tour.

 

 

With over 100 golfers coming to Forsyth and fans coming from all over to watch, the event is a big economic boost for the Forsyth and Decatur area. Deadrick-Wolfer says they can estimate its impacts but ultimately it is hard to put a real number on it.

 

 

Leading up to the Friday through Sunday event, there are a number of opportunities to interact and meet the golfers. You can get more on those events and the tournament itself by visiting decaturforsythclassic.com.
