Submitted on June 17, 2011 at 2:09 PM

Golfers will have a chance to show their stuff at the Volunteer State Bank Fifth Annual Athletic Golf Classic, benefiting the Volunteer State Community College Athletic Association. The tournament will be held on August 1 at the Bluegrass Country Club in Hendersonville. Registration, warm-up and a light brunch begins at 10:30 a.m. followed by a noon shotgun start.

The Golf Classic raises money to help support the athletic programs at Vol State. Volunteer State Bank is the title sponsor once again this year, having also led the event in that capacity in 2010.

Businesses and individuals are encouraged to enter teams for the event. The cost per team is $500. There will be prizes for longest drive, men and women's par 3 and closest to the pin. Super-tickets can be purchased for $25 each. They include a putting contest, chipping contest and other fun events.

Title, Eagle and Birdie sponsors are eligible to compete for bragging rights to win the traveling Corporate Cup. A full-range of sponsorship opportunities are still available. To register a team, or for more information, call the Volunteer State College Foundation at 615-230-3509.
