One of Palm Beach’s most popular sporting events returns for its ninth year on Saturday.

The annual One Club Tournament at the Palm Beach Par 3 tees off at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., with a total of 144 golfers registered to participate. The event started in 2013 with about 60 golfers.

Tournament organizers added a second flight several years ago in an effort to meet high demand, said Tony Chateauvert, PGA head professional and manager of the Par 3.
