The 76th annual Good Park Junior Golf Tournament at Good Park Golf Course was canceled due to the extreme wet weather this week in Akron.
Golf course supervisor Warren A. Lynum II said this is the first time that the tournament has been canceled in its history.
Rain on Tuesday night caused Wednesday’s first round to be postponed. Heavy rainfall on Wednesday in Akron caused flooding on streets, within homes and wiped out Thursday’s second round.
The decision was made Thursday to cancel the event.
The 216 golfers will receive refunds for their entrance fees. The tournament included boys and girls ages 8-18.
