Bradwell Institute’s Tiger Touchdown Club will host its inaugural golf tournament at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Cherokee Rose Country Club in Hinesville.
The proceeds from the tournament will go to the BI Tigers football team.
According to tournament coordinator Craig Stafford, roughly 14 teams have registered, but he said there is room for more teams. Those wanting to participate should register onsite or call ahead to reserve a spot. The fee is $50 per person or $200 per four-person team.
Hole sponsorships still are available for $100. Stafford said 70 hole sponsorships have been sold as of Thursday morning.
Golfers will have a chance to win a car with a hole-in-one at a hole to be determined. Prizes will be awarded to the top four places. For more information on tourney, call 876-5503.
The golf tournament is just one of several activities the club has planned.
The club’s first membership meeting will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday Aug. 8, at the Bradwell Institute cafeteria. All current members and those interested in joining the club are encouraged to attend.
Seventy-one Tiger football players just returned from a defensive-training camp at the University of West Georgia, new head coach Adam Carter’s alma mater.
The team held a weight-lifting competition throughout the summer to raise funds to attend and, according to Carter, the players enjoyed their summer of workouts.
Twenty schools and 1,500 players were expected to participate.
Carter said the camp gave his players an opportunity to come together as a team and compete against some of the best programs in the state in pads and helmets and go through full-contact drills. Carter said the camp would help show him which players really want to play.
Carter was a three-year starter at defensive back at UWG, earning all-conference academic and all-conference recognitions.
Newly appointed Liberty County School Superintendent Dr. Valya Lee said she was excited about the Tigers’ participation in the camp.
“It was my pleasure to visit with the Tigers during an early morning conditioning and training session last week,” she said. “The team already looks good, and this camp experience will be an added bonus for readying the team for the upcoming football season.”
Carter will take only a quick break from football to participate in Saturday’s golf tournament and share the players’ camp experience.
