About the Buckley Open

The Buckley Open was started 1986 by Bob Buckley with the help of his family: Spencer, Cleo, and Barbara.  A friend of Bob's in Alpena, Michigan started a youth golf tournament and Bob took some Huron County adults and kids to check it out and play in it.  Impressed with the youth tournament, Bob decided to start a youth golf tournament in Huron County. Many Verona members helped with the event. In the beginning the golf tournament was only at Verona.  At that time there weren't many youth golf events so it attracted people from far away.  One year we had over 120 kids in the tournament.  Based on the amount of kids at Verona, Bob decided to expand to other towns and added additional courses.  Fortunately, all the courses we presented it to were happy to volunteer their course for the day.

Thank you to all our volunteers and golfers that make the Buckley Junior Open possible.
