The three-day, 54-hole tourney gets under way Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. and concludes Thursday.
Its amazing just how good these kids are, Coosa golf pro Brian Albertson said. College coaches from around the country will be recruiting. One time, we had 30 coaches here.
The field will include a strong group of Greater Rome golfers.
Playing in the boys division will be Romes Patrick McShane, Collin Doss, Will Jones and Cameron Barnes, Cedartowns Ryan Zebeau and Jared Henderson of Calhoun, while Lacey Sheppard of Rome is in the girls field.
