Golf tournament benefits the Promise Fund
It is time to tee off once again as Southern Wesleyan University prepares to host the annual P.B. Wood Golf Tournament on Monday, Oct. 20, at Pickens Country Club.
The tournament raises money for the Promise Fund, which helps provide scholarships as well as academic and student program support. The tournament is held in honor of Paul Baker Wood, Southern Wesleyan University professor emeritus and psychologist.
Dale Gilbert of WYFF is scheduled to be this year's celebrity golfer.
Prizes will be awarded to each member of the first, second and third place teams. The prize for the first place team is a set of Nike Sumo Shot irons with bags. The prize for the second place team is a Nike Sumo 5000 driver. The prize for the third place team is a Sumo Hybrid. Prizes will also be awarded to the golfer who is closest to the pin and the golfer who has the longest drive. There will also be a hole-in-one contest and various door prizes.
The tournament is a captain's choice event and each team has four members. You can register as a team of four, or individuals may be placed on a team.
The entry fee is $100 for an individual and $400 for a team. This fee covers greens fees, cart fees, breakfast, lunch and various giveaways.
Several levels of sponsorship are available. Tee sponsorships are $100 and hole sponsorships are $250. Corporate sponsorships are $1,000 and include one golfer registration fee. Co-sponsorships are $2,500 and include one team registration fee. Registration is limited to 36 teams and slots are filling up fast.
