Kingston Rotary postpones June golf tournament

The Kingston North Kitsap Rotary Club has postponed its annual Swing for Rotary Golf Tournament to June 2021. This was to be the club’s 14th annual tournament to benefit its projects and initiatives in North Kitsap and across the world.

The tournament has been postponed due to uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak.

According to tournament co-chairs Breane Martinez and Jackie Wood, “We pride ourselves on providing a first-rate guest experience. We want our golfers and sponsors to have fun and to feel as if they are involved in a high quality event. We don’t believe that would be possible this year given questions about social distancing, gatherings of more than a few people, food and beverage restrictions, course restrictions, and so on.”

They went on to say, “we hated to come to this decision, as the tournament has been such a success over the years. Tell all the golfers we’ll give them an extra ‘gimme’ next year.”
