For more than 15 years, a golf tournament has been a part of Watertown's annual Rails To Trails celebration. The event was started in 1997 by Gary Burke, a Watertown resident and banker who was also a former college golfer and club professional. After Gary's passing, the Watertown Lions Club did what seemed natural: they decided to name the tournament in Burke's honor. Please come out and join us. All proceeds will benefit the American Heart Association.

This event will be held at Pioneer Creek golf course in Maple Plaine, MN on Friday, July 15, 2016. Registration begins at noon. Shotgun start at 1 pm. Cost per golfer is $75.00. Entry includes 18 holes of championship golf, use of practice facility with complimentary range balls, electric carts with GPS and complimentary dinner at Rails to Trails Festival.

Prizes awarded to 1st and 2nd place teams. Additional prizes awarded for longest drive, closest to the pin, longest putt and hole-in-one challenge.
