Cullowhee, N.C. - The next stop on the 2014 Catamount Golf Tour is scheduled for Wednesday, June 4, with the annual Catamount Football Classic. This year's event will be held at the Waynesville Inn Golf Resort and Spa, with all funds generated going towards the WCU Football Scholarship Fund.
Western Carolina third-year head coach Mark Speir and the members of his coaching staff, as well as several of the current football student-athletes will be in attendance at the tournament.
"We're very excited about the Catamount Golf Classic," said Speir. "It is a great opportunity to spend quality time with alumni and boosters, enjoying fellowship and increasing the energy and support of Catamount athletics, especially football. It's also a great chance to meet some of the student-athletes we have in our football program to show first hand who our scholarship funds are assisting. My staff and I are greatly looking forward to seeing everyone next Wednesday."
Registration for the tournament begins at 11:30 a.m. ahead of the 1:00 p.m. shotgun start to the four-man, captain's choice formatted event. Throughout the round, there will be specialty prizes awarded for feats such as longest drive and closest to the pin on select par-3 holes. Golfers can select from two playing options. Individual entry for $150 includes golf and dinner or the players package for $200 that includes golf, dinner, one mulligan, one red tee and three raffle tickets.
Golf hole sponsorship opportunities starting at just $100 still remain for supporters that are unable to attend the event.
