RENO, Nev. (March 21, 2016) – The Barracuda Championship is now accepting player entries for the Reno Open, scheduled for May 17-18, at Washoe Golf Course. The tournament offers professional and amateur golfers a chance to compete for an exemption into the 18th annual Barracuda Championship PGA TOUR.
“We brought back the Reno Open last year and it was so well received,” said Chris Hoff, executive director of the Barracuda Championship. “It’s a pretty incredible chance for both amateur and professional golfers to have the chance to play alongside renowned PGA TOUR professionals like John Daly, JJ Henry and Geoff Ogilvy.”
In addition to the chance of winning an exemption, players will compete for a piece of the $10,000 purse (based on 100 entrants) during the two-day Modified Stableford format tournament. Entry is $600 per person and includes a two-night stay at Eldorado Resort Casino and breakfast and lunch on both days.
Early registration is encouraged as space is limited. To reserve a spot in the tournament or for more information about any of the Barracuda Championship events visit www.BarracudaChampionship.com.
