UWF to host sixth annual alumni golf tournament

The University of West Florida will host the sixth annual Alumni Scholarship Classic tournament Friday, Sept. 28 at Scenic Hills Country Club. All of the proceeds from the tournament will fund UWF student scholarships.

Last year, the tournament raised $8,300, for a total of $36,000 over a six-year period.

“The Annual Alumni Scholarship Classic has become such an integral event of the Alumni Association. It’s a great opportunity to participate in an activity that benefits both alumni and current students,” said Luke van Blaricom, president of the Alumni Association. “Over the past six years, more than $36,000 has been raised to directly support UWF students through scholarships.”

Registration and lunch begins at 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 28, and the shotgun start for the 18-hole scramble begins at noon. The tournament fees are $325 for a group of four or $85 for individuals. The cost includes a greens fee, cart fee, range balls, lunch, awards ceremony, goodie bag and a ticket for a prize drawing. Individual players or incomplete foursomes will be paired with other players on the day of the tournament.

The deadline to register is Monday, Sept. 24. For more information, contact Alumni Relations at alumni@uwf.edu or 1-800-226-1893, or visit the tournament website.
