BECKLEY — More than 150 golfers will hit the links today as the 32nd annual Beckley Newspapers Memorial Golf Classic tees off with the opening rounds at Pipestem Resort State Park and Grandview Country Club.

The field will be divided in half, with one group playing the Pipestem course and the other Grandview today. They’ll flip-flop Sunday, and the final round will be played Monday at The Resort at Glade Springs’ Cobb Course.

Today’s tee times at Pipestem begin at 7:30 a.m., with the last group scheduled for a 10:50 a.m. start. Grandview tee times begin at 7:20 today with the last time set for 10:40.

Players will play mostly in foursomes, with a few groups of three on the courses.

Reigning champion Christian Brand – who actually won three straight – has turned professional and will not compete in the BNI this year, leaving the field wide open for a new champion.
