It’s the time of year again. Hickory North Carolina’s most famous golf event is back with a new name. The Ensure Classic at Rock Barn Presented by Kia Motors will be taking place at the end of this month at Rock Barn Golf and Spa in Conover, NC. This 54-hole stroke play tournament will take place on the Jones Course, an 18-hole course with 7, 046 yards of golf which was designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
This year, 78 players are expected to compete for the $262,500 of the $1.75 million purse that is set aside for the winner.
