On Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1, Haystack Golf Course in Wilmington will host the Sarah Hunter Spring Classic for the second time. The tournament honors the memory of Sarah Hunter, who served as head golf professional at Manchester Country Club. More information on the tournament will follow when it is available.

“Sarah Hunter was a pioneer in junior golf and created a thriving youth golf program while at Manchester,” said Michelle Dougherty, General Manager of Manchester Country Club. “She grew up playing golf at a country club and learned to love and respect the game. She believed golf courses were places to teach children about life, how to behave around adults and how to learn to enjoy competition. 

Tragically, Sarah was murdered in September 1986 and the case remains unsolved to this day. A video by Carl Tone films, “Overtaken by Darkness” sets forth the facts of the case, details evidence, and reveals the prime suspect, a person long known to law enforcement but never convicted of the crime.
