Football Alumni Golf Classic
COOKEVILLE, Tenn. - Former Tennessee Tech football players are invited to gather on Saturday, July 10, for the team's annual Alumni Golf Classic at the Cookeville Golf Club.
Prior to the golf outing, the public is invited to join the festivities with a Friday night BBQ dinner. Tickets for the Friday night dinner are $20 each and can be purchased in advance (online at TTUsports.com) or at the Cookeville Golf Club the day of the event. All proceeds from the dinner will directly benefit the Golden Eagle football program.
Former Golden Eagle Tom Pemberton is heading up this year's golf event, and is encouraging all former players to return for the day's activities.
"It is such an honor for me to be allowed to step up and carry on the tradition set by Larry Schreiber's many years of hard work for this golf tournament," Pemberton said. "No one can fill Larry's shoes, but we can continue the excellent work he has begun and we need the help of our former players to do that.
"This event just keeps growing and growing," Pemberton said.
"Our goals are to raise money for the Robert Hill Johnson
Scholarship Endowment and for the TTU football progam."
For alumni who can get to town early, former player Ottis Phillips is hosting a separate event to benefit the football program.
Miller Lite and Stone Steel will host a Friday evening dinner from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Cookeville Golf Club. The dinner will feature some of the South’s best barbecue for what has become a legendary feast.
Pre-registration for the golf tournament is available until noon on Thursday, July 8. Pre-registration is available either in-person at the football office, by phone (931-372-3930), or online at TTUsports.com.
If space is available, registration will also be available at the golf event beginning at 10 a.m.
The four-man scramble format tournament will get underway at noon with a shotgun start.
The cost of the playing in the event is $100 per person, both during pre-registration and the day of the tournament but the field is limited to the first 120 golfers to sign up. All proceeds from the tournament go to the Tennessee Tech football program and the Robert Hill Johnson endowment.
