Thirty-four of Greenville’s finest senior citizens scrambled to form teams for the weekly golf tournament held every Tuesday morning at Wright Park Municipal Golf Course.  Reverend “Slack” Brown said “we meet for friendship and to razz each other when a bad shot is made”.  The scramble organized two years or so according to Curtis Morris.

Historic McQuinney Howell Wright Park was established in 1928.  Dr. F. L. Young built a two story club house there a few years later.  Unfortunately, the club house burned to the ground in 1985. The course was renovated in 2002.  The Bermuda grass greens are fast and trees line each fairway.  There are several water obstacles on this nine hole course.  Bo Hartline is the course superintendent and golf pro.
