By  | 

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The greens at Northwood Country Club in Meridian will be full of golfers in a few weeks for the East Mississippi Business Development Corporation Golf Classic.

This marks the 21st year the EMBDC is hosting the tournament. It connects members of the community through every swing, putt and birdie.

EMBDC officials say the tournament grows each year and has become the go-to event of the year for members and non-members.

"We cannot function without our members. Our membership is everything to us. We not only appreciate their support but also them coming out and playing in the tournament. Also like i said you don't have to be a member to play in the golf classic," said events coordinator Casey Holladay.

The Golf Classic will take place Friday, Sept. 22. To register a team for either the morning or afternoon golf flight, call the EMBDC at 601-693-1306 or visit its website through the attached link.
