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.
