TRGA Cedar Creek Open rescheduled

The Three Rivers Golf Association VPP Group/Big Sky Cattle Cedar Creek Open at The Golf Club at Cedar Creek in Onalaska, originally scheduled for Sunday, June 24, has been rescheduled for Sunday, Aug. 12.   
Cedar Creek suffered some ice damage over the winter. Because the fifth green will be closed for the next few weeks, a decision was made to move the event to later in the season.   
Conditions will be back to normal by then, according to Dave Cornelius, PGA professional and general manager at Cedar Creek.
