The Silver Bow Open junior golf tournament scheduled for this afternoon at the Butte Country Club has been called off because of rain and flooding on the course.
The tournament was to be the second stop on the South West Montana Junior Golf Tour.
Tour chairman Bob Wengel said he is hopeful the tournament will be rescheduled. He said several holes at the country club are under water, and he feared the creeks could overflow their banks and create hazardous conditions.
The National Weather Service also issued a flood advisory for Southwestern Montana this morning.
The next stop on the tour is the Anaconda Challenge, which is next Monday at the Anaconda Country Club in Opportunity.
