Annual Western Nevada College Golf Classic planned

Special to the Nevada Appeal

More than 150 golfers are expected to compete in the 16th annual Western Nevada College Golf Classic on Friday, Sept. 18, at Silver Oak Course.

Proceeds from this year’s tournament, hosted by the Western Nevada College Foundation, go to the college’s greatest needs, including scholarships, Jump Start College and the Applied Industrial Technology programs.

“This annual tournament provides scholarships to students who might not otherwise be able to attend college,” Foundation Director Katie Leao said. “We are grateful for the community’s support year after year.”

The 18-hole tournament features a four-person best-ball format with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Teams of four can sign up for $475, and individuals can sign up for $125. Business sponsorship and team entry is $700.

Tournament fees include raffle and tee prizes, barbecue and awards ceremony, hole-in-one prizes, on-course refreshments, a margarita hole, poker run and team photos.

“Community members and business leaders look forward to the tournament every year,” Leao said. “Lots of spirited competition, camaraderie and the satisfaction of contributing to our students make this a really fun event.”

Tournament sponsors include Michael Hohl Automotive Group, AT&T, Waddell & Reed — Amy Clemens and Stevan Lyon, and Eagle Valley Golf Course.
