OWASSO — The Patriot Cup Invitational golf tournament, scheduled for Monday, has been closed to the public
"With all the rain, the course is just not safe for spectators, safety of our guests and players is our number one priority" Maj. Dan Rooney, founder of the Folds of Honor, told the Tulsa World.
Rooney said that he is disappointed as there have been a number of tickets sold, which is a testament of how the local community has embraced and supports the event.
Rooney said that people who have purchased tickets can either get a refund, or those tickets will be honored at next year’s event. Details of how to request a refund will be announced in the next day or two, he said.
Rooney also said, "while it will be unsafe for a large number of spectators to be on the course, a modified 9-hole tournament will still be played by the participants."
"We will have a walking 9-hole tournament that can be seen live on TV from 2 p.m.-4 p.m.
"You can still enjoy the tournament in the comfort of your living room tuning into Fox Sports1, channel 219 on Direct TV, and channels 67 and 1312 on Cox Cable."
