Flagler County was selected as the state tournament site for April 2015. Under the direction of Tom Martone, president of the Flagler County Horseshoe Pitching Club, the tournament will be held at the horseshoe courts at Old Dixie Park, a 20-acre county park off South Dixie Highway, and will attract horseshoe pitchers from around the state. A final date is to be determined.
“This will be an exciting time for Flagler County, as visitors will be visiting our area for five days and four nights during the time of the year when hotels and campsites have availability,” said Casey Ryan, of the Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches tourism office.
