COOKEVILLE, Tenn. - Former Tennessee Tech football players are invited to gather on July 11-12, for the team's annual Alumni Golf Classic at the Cookeville Golf Club. Last year's gathering was the largest ever for the event, and early indications point to another outstanding turnout so interested alumni should act quickly to reserve space in the tournament.

And, for the first time, the chance to play in the four-man scramble tournament is open to public. Because of the popularity of the weekend, there will be two flights of golfers, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The field, however, is still limited to the first 170 golfers to register.

Prior to the golf outing on Saturday, the festivities begin with a Friday night BBQ dinner.

The cost of the tournament is $110 per person, which includes goody bag, practice round, Friday night BBQ dinner, cart, Saturday lunch (John Dogs) and Saturday night dinner with awards. Golfers who wish to purchase additional Friday or Saturday night dinner tickets for a guest may do so for $20 each ticket.

All proceeds from the dinner and the tournament 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.

"We are really excited about the response and comments we have been getting for the tournament," Pemberton said. "It's a chance for former players to come back and meet with the coaching staff, and gain a little insight into the 2014 season.

"It should be an outstanding event as this tournament continues to grow," Pemberton added. "Our goals are to raise money for the TTU football progam."
