Skill prizes will be awarded for Championship Flight, First Flight, Longest Drive (Men/Women), and Closest to the Hole (Men/Women).
Individuals or businesses can sponsor a hole or half-hole starting at $600.00. The cost includes promotional consideration on the golf course and Athens State’s website. Team registration fees are $800.00, and each player will receive a $50.00 Canebrake Pro Shop gift certificate, shared cart, lunch, dinner, greens fees, course refreshments, two mulligans, one power drive, and hospitality gifts. All proceeds from the Golf Classic fund scholarships, with almost $50,000 raised last year. Scholarships were awarded to 11 Athens State students during the 2022-2023 school year. All students honored by these scholarships volunteer their time to represent Athens State at the tournament and other events on campus throughout the year.
Team registration will close on September 14.
