Around 70 teams participated in the event. Tour owner Scott VanderWerp blamed the forecasted rainy weather for scaring away many teams.

“Our event participation is so reliant on weather forecasts and when the players see 60 percent chance of rain, it hurts,” VanderWerp said after the June 16 event. “We had about 70 teams participating this weekend, and if it would have been a sunny warm beach day we will probably have between 100 to 125 teams.”

Today’s forecast is much more promising, with just a slight chance of thunderstorms later in the afternoon.
