The game of golf is celebrating several milestones this year. The USGA is celebrating its 125th year, the PGA of America marks its 105th birthday, and the U.S. Women’s Open is 75.

These giants of the game may have a few years on the Paducah Sun’s Florence Paxton Memorial, but the local ladies’ golf tournament embodies some of the same honorable traditions as these organizations, and a remarkable history as well.
