A Message from Bobby White, Horseshoe Tour President...
We’ve been patiently waiting for the last five years and it seems the heavens are finally lining up for us, as we’ve found a truly marvelous event that we can proudly call the “2017 Horseshoe Tour National Championships.” The venue is the Civic Center in Florence, South Carolina, better known to us in the horseshoe world as the site of the coming 2018 NHPA World Horseshoe Championships! Yes, just like York, this is an indoor tournament being hosted by a truly first class facility and host city. The Florence CC staff is constructing 16 NHPA sanctioned portable clay horseshoe courts just for this event. The facility will be in full operation, including concessions and the player reception and meetings will all be at the site. Host hotel and more specific event information will be published here as it comes available.
There are endless hotels and restaurants in close proximity to the tournament site and that doesn’t even begin to describe the beauty of Florence and surrounding areas. There just couldn’t be a better host site than Florence. Not only is the facility as good as it gets, but the prize fund they’ve offered for this event is completely over the top! When you combine that with the huge entry we’re expecting, it should pay completely off the charts at all levels!
We want a victory at the Horseshoe Tour National Championship to mean something and, just like in York, it will here in Florence. In cultivating such an atmosphere, we hope to attract the best of the best players at all skill levels in the sport and bring them all together for a couple days of intense competition and tremendous camaraderie that is so unique to our great sport, particularly at Horseshoe Tour Tournaments.
Players come up to us everywhere we go and thank us for bringing back that warm “family feeling” to the sport that seems to have faded in recent years, and there will surely be all kinds of fun and excitement in Florence! So plan on finishing off this season with what will surely be one of our greatest tournaments ever… the Horseshoe Tour’s 2017 National Championships in Florence, SC! -Bobby White, Horseshoe Tour President
