Homecoming Weekend is just around the corner and we are preparing for our Annual Golf Tournament scheduled for Friday, October 7, 2011. The local Highland Walk Golf Course at Victoria Bryant State Park has been reserved for this event. This beautiful State course offers both a scenic and challenging layout.
Last year was a successful year for sponsorships at the Alumni & Friends Homecoming Golf Tournament. Your generous donations provided approximately $5,800.00, that went toward the ‘Entry/Plaza Project’ Fund. Your giving made the campus more beautiful and attractive. The National Alumni Board & the College want to “thank you” for your generous sponsorship donations.
This event has always been a highlight of Homecoming Weekend and provides great fellowship and camaraderie. Both individual and team prizes will be awarded. It is very important that you pre-register individually, or as a team, so we can prepare adequately for lunch and assign teams to their starting holes.
Registration begins at 12 noon and lunch will be served at the course covered pavilion immediately following registration. Cost for this Captain’s Choice Tournament is $50 per golfer which includes green fee, cart, lunch and prizes.
Let’s make this the largest Homecoming Weekend tournament ever!
