Second, it’s my goal to continue the legacy of a fair and yet competitive golf tournament on a beautiful and historic golf course. And last, but certainly not least, it’s about throwing one heckava good party! This year’s Cherokee Strip will be bigger and better than ever! So put your party pants on and be there! ””
