If you’re not up on what the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open is all about, here’s a little background:
From 1971 to 2005 En-Joie Golf Club in Endicott hosted the B.C. Open, an annual PGA Tour, but in 2006, the last year the BC Open was to be played at En-Joie Golf Club, the Greater Binghamton area suffered the worst flooding from the Susquehanna River area in the regions history.
With the golf course covered in water, mud and debris the tournament was forced to be moved to some place else. However, in 2007 En-Joie became the host of a new Champions Tour event. The Dick’s Sporting Goods Open was born, and En-Joie once again continues to test the skills of professional golfers, now for those players over the age of 50.
