Highland Classic

Two golfers tee off during the 50th Annual Highland Classic held at the St. Joseph Country Club on Tuesday.

It was a busy morning Tuesday at the St. Joseph Country Club, where competitors for the 50th Annual Highland Classic took their golf skills to the links. Women golfers from northern Missouri took to the course in groups to showcase their talents.

“A lot of these women are the top women in Northwest Missouri,” tournament chairman Jackie Runyan said. “It’s very competitive. Great partners, and their traditions. They have played most of them with the same partner for many, many years and they look forward to it, it’s kind of their little getaway.”
