The 16th Annual Blueberry Classic Golf Tournament was held Wednesday, June 9, 2004 at the Country Club of Brewton.
The event, arranged by the Country Club of Brewton Ladies Golf Association, began 16 years ago with a much smaller group of women participating.
This year there were 100 women who took part in the 18-hole scramble consisting of 50 teams competing to be the winners.
Judy Brown, president of the association and Mary Shirley, chairman, with the help of a committee of people, planned an afternoon of golf for those participating which they enjoyed despite the heat. Prizes were given in the form of gift certificates and door prizes donated by sponsors were given.
