Military, civilians compete for bragging rights at golf tourney

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Chamber of Commerce business members and personnel from the Marine Corps Logistics Base spent time playing golf Friday, reinforcing a decades old relationship.

The Salty Sandbagger golf tournament is an event that has been going on since the mid 70's.

The event reinforces the relationship between key leaders at MCLB and in the business community.

Twice a year, the two groups take to the golf course, hoping to bring home the trophy.

It has gone back and forth over the years but the marine base hasn't taken home the trophy in a number of years.

"Its been going on a long time and I think it's a pretty good competition so we gotta step it up today," said Tommy Clark with the Albany Chamber of Commerce.

"The base has not been the owners of the trophy," admitted Major General Graig Crenshaw, the Commanding General of MCLB.

The civilians brought home the trophy once again Friday.
