As fall practices begins for the 2018-19 Bisons, it's time to start preparing for Lipscomb baseball’s 13th Annual Alumni & Friends Golf Tournament which is set for Friday, October 19th.
With the 2017 event being the most successful fundraisers in the program’s history, Coach Jeff Forehand is excited to announce this year’s tournament will return to the Gaylord Springs Golf Links. The challenging course is named routinely as one of the best in the state by Golfweek and designed by US Open and PGA champion Larry Nelson, offers challenges for golfers of any skill level.
The links-style course demands accuracy to stay clear of the deep bunkers, water hazards and rolling grass mounds but also requires creativity and a soft touch around the undulating, MiniVerde Bermuda grass greens.
Carved from the banks of the meandering Cumberland River and bordered by limestone bluffs and wetlands, Gaylord Springs Golf Links will test and enthuse you from the moment you tee off until you pull your ball from the cup.
The daily festivities are slated to begin at 7:30 a.m. with registration and will be followed with a shotgun start at 8. Immediately after the conclusion of play, lunch will be served and the awards ceremony will commence.
All alumni and fans are also encouraged to meet at Dugan Field for Alumni batting practice after lunch. This years event will also serve as a reunion of 2008 ASUN Championship team.
Entry into the tournament, including lunch and gift bags, golf hat, and team issued hoddie, cost $200 per individual. There are also numerous sponsorship opportunities listed below if you can't make it and want to support the program
All proceeds will go towards helping the Lipscomb Baseball program.
