Flagler College is partnering with TPC Sawgrass to host the 2012 President's Golf Classic sponsored by the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. The tournament will take place at the Dye's Valley Golf Course at TPC Sawgrass on Sept 21. Proceeds from the Golf Classic benefit the Flagler College Athletics Scholarship Fund.
The Dye's Valley Course is best known as the sibling to the world-renowned Players Stadium Course. It is referred to as a "challenging yet fair course" with water on every hole. The Flagler College President's Golf Classic is a four-person team scramble tournament and the field is limited to the first 120 entrants.
Various sponsorship packages are available and individual player registration is $300. Registration covers cart, greens fees, range balls, tournament golf shirt, prizes and an awards reception. Additionally, a portion of the registration fee benefits the Flagler College Athletics scholarship fund and is tax deductible.
The top seven scoring teams and the team with the highest score will be awarded prizes. The team with the lowest gross score will have their names added to the Abare Cup, a perpetual trophy established by the Flagler College Board of Trustees in 2009 as a tribute to William T. Abare, Jr. Prizes will also be awarded for the longest drive and closest to the pin.
