Defending champion Maine will host the Tri-State Matches Sept. 20-22 at Martindale CC in Auburn. Maine knocked off defending champion New Hampshire in the tournament held in Vermont last year.

TEE TO GREEN: According to Jane Blalock, owner of the Jane Blalock Company, which runs The Legends Tour, the official Legends Tour of the LPGA, an event will not be played in late June at the Falmouth CC as the inaugural one was last year. Hannaford dropped sponsorship of the tournament as the company is going through restructuring.

Blalock is still hopeful that a Legends Tour tournament can be held at Falmouth.

"All the players really enjoyed being in Falmouth and Portland last year," said Blalock.

Dan Steege, a 2005 graduate of Bonny Eagle High, is an assistant golf pro at the Long Bay Golf Club, near Myrtle Beach, S.C. Steege recently passed his PGA Playing Ability Test by shooting 75-71-146. He birdied the last three holes. Steege is in the PGA Professional Golf Management Program, working toward his teaching pro credentials. Steege played on the golf team at Bonny Eagle.

The 49th annual Paul Bunyan Tournament will be played June 1 and 2 at Penobscot Valley CC in Orono and the Kebo Valley Club in Bar Harbor. Entry fee is $99 with a May 8 deadline.
