ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Nearly 27 teams participated in the Deputy Dog Golf tournament Friday.
The tournament was named after Deputy Frank Sumner, who was remembered to be a positive role model for children.
One committee member says it's been hosted each year for quite a while.
"This is the 19th year that we had this tournament. Many of the years we've played here at Grand Island, which we appreciate what they've done for us," said Bill Banks, Deputy Dog Golf classic Committee Member.
