Enjoying the outdoors for Billy in Wyoming County

The event was held at Lazybrook Park in Tunkhannock Township on Sunday.

TUNKHANNOCK, Pa. — For the second year in a row a disc golf tournament was held in honor of a loved one

At Lazy Brook Park in Tunkhannock Township, the tournament in Wyoming County was in honor of Billy Kresge, who died in 2019 after a car crash in Florida. 

This is the second year for the tournament that is planned on the Wyoming County native's birthday weekend.

"It is. I know this weekend he was definitely smiling down on us, gave us great weather, and I know that he would love this, and he would love to see everybody getting together and having fun and enjoying the outdoors," said Molly Kresge-Zluchowski, sister of Billy Kresge.

Proceeds benefit the disc golf course. 

Last year, the event raised enough money to expand the course from 9 holes to 18. 

This year, they hope to raise enough money to complete those nine new holes with tee pads in Wyoming County.
