The 24th Annual Governors Golf Classic is just three weeks away.
Sponsored by the Governors Club, the four-person men and women’s scramble will be limited to 60 teams, 30 per shotgun starts at noon, Friday, August 27th, and 8:00am, Saturday, August 28th, at Swan Lake Golf Course.
For a fourth straight year, men and women’s divisions are established. Cost is $400.00 per team, or $100.00 per person. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit Austin Peay State University Athletics.
Prizes, including a set of Calloway irons and golf lessons from Swan Lake golf pro Jeff Vaughn, total $6,500 and will be awarded to the first, second, third, fourth and last place for each flight. Women’s division prizes will be awarded to first, second and last place on Saturday. Women’s teams playing Friday will be included in the women’s division, Saturday.
Players age 65 and older may hit from the senior tees while women may hit from the ladies’ tees.
One format change has occurred, although it will not affect the golf itself. The tourney dinner, normally held on Friday night following the tourney’s first round, has been shifted to Thursday night at the Charles Hand Farm. The social hour will be at 6:00pm with the dinner beginning at 7:00pm. Individuals not playing can still attend the dinner for $25.00 per couple.
