For 50 years professional golfers from all over the world have converged on Bangor Municipal Golf Course to compete in the Greater Bangor Open Golf Tournament. In those years, players such as Sean O'Hair, Lanny Wadkins, and Keegan Bradley have competed in the tournament monicored "The Best in New England" by its players. Each year the GBO attracts a higher caliber of players all competing for the $9,000.00 first prize and the right to call themselves a Bangor Open Champion!
Over the last 5 decades the GBO has produced more than great champions. Since its inception in 1967, the GBO has become one of the largest charity golf tournaments in New England. With the help of dozens of area local business sponsors, we are continuing that tradition today! GBO week is more than just a golf event. The tournament kicks off on wednesday when our sponsors team up with a top professional to compete in our Pro-Am tournament. After the Pro-Am is the exciting Long Drive Competition. This is always a fan favorite. Starting Thursday the tournament field hits the course. Our newest tradition is the Thursday Lobster Bake.
With special thanks to Ralph Backman and Hero's Sports Grill, GBO Tournament players can enjoy a FREE Lobster Dinner after the first tournament round. Whether you are a player, sponsor or golf enthusiast...be sure not to miss this years Greater Bangor Open Golf Tournament!
