Cullowhee, N.C. - In its third season of helping raise funds for Western Carolina student-athlete scholarships, the Catamount Golf Tour is off and running this season with its next event right around the corner. The third tournament in the seven-event tour this year is the Catamount Football Classic, which will be held Friday, June 4 at the Maggie Valley Club in Maggie Valley, N.C.
With stops thus far in Marion, N.C., and Fort Mill, S.C., the Catamount Golf Tour has seen excellent turnouts from fans and alumni. Together, the first two tournaments have generated over $15,000 in support of the Catamount Athletic Scholarship Fund with both tournaments individually increasing their contribution to the Athletic Scholarship fund by over 30% from last year.
The annual Catamount Football Classic has been a favorite of many over the years, and will once again be one of the premier tournaments on the Golf Tour schedule. This tournament provides an excellent opportunity to meet and interact with each of our WCU Football Coaches, while also enjoying a great day of lunch, golf and dinner at the beautiful Maggie Valley Golf Club.
The event will be held on Friday, June 4th at the Maggie Valley Golf Club in Maggie Valley, N.C., with a 1:00 pm shotgun start.
To register for this tournament please contact the Catamount Club Office at 828.227.3794 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
"We are extremely grateful for the support of each of the participants and sponsors of these events as the Golf Tour strives to reach its 2010 Goal of $50,000," said Catamount Club Director, Gorham Bradley. "We hope to see each of you on the course with the Catamounts this summer. And remember, funding scholarships wins championships!"
