GREAT NUMBERS FOR LAST YEAR'S GREATER HARTFORD OPEN
Published February 27, 1998
Despite "several adverse factors," last year's Canon Greater Hartford Open (GHO) "netted" $1.59M, the second largest profit for the Greater Hartford Jaycees in the tournament's 46-year history, according to Bruce Berlet of the HARTFORD COURANT. Bad weather curtailed attendance and "several significant investments" were made in the tournament, including a new manual leaderboard, along with new bleachers, landscaping and electrical work. The event's four-day attendance "matched" the second-highest ever, behind 310,000 in '94 (HARTFORD COURANT, 2/26).
