Utah veterans took to the Logan Country Club golf course on Monday afternoon as part of “Veterans on Course,” a program that holds frequent golf competitions for veterans across the state.

Organized by the Utah Golf Foundation, the nonprofit branch of the Utah Golf Association, the initiative has hosted a veterans’ competition in Logan for the past five years.

Megan Huntsman, the foundation’s senior activity coordinator, explained the roots of the program stretch back to discussions between the association and several individuals they thought would be helpful in starting the project.
