Spots available for Aiken Golf Classic

March 30, 2019

Entries into the field and sponsorship opportunities are still available for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life Aiken Golf Classic, scheduled for Monday, April 22.

This year’s Aiken Golf Classic is the 13th annual installment of the charity tournament, played in memory of Dennis Bartholomew and so many others lost to cancer.

Last year’s event raised more than $36,000, pushing the 12-year total past $376,000, for the Aiken Relay for Life to benefit the American Cancer Society.

This year’s tournament will take place on the Wisteria (Jones) and Plantation (Cupp) courses at Woodside Plantation Country Club. In case of rain – like last year – a make-up date is scheduled for April 29.

The format is an 18-hole scramble with a 9:30 a.m. shotgun start. Registration begins and the practice areas open at 8:30 a.m., and Woodside will provide a complimentary breakfast.

There are several sponsorship opportunities for prospective players. The cost is $130 for an individual – or $520 for a foursome – and that includes range balls, greens and cart fees, a complimentary gift package and a mulligan.

A tee sponsorship is $225 and a Gold sponsor – which includes range balls, greens and cart fees, a gift package and a mulligan for each player plus recognition on the corporate sponsorship banner – is $625 for a foursome.

A single mulligan can be purchased for $5. If one just isn’t enough, five can be purchased for $20.

Diamond, Platinum, Platinum Plus and Presenting sponsorships are also available.

Beverages and lunch provided by Honey Baked Ham will be served on the course. Immediately following play is the 19th Hole Cocktail Reception, featuring complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.

There will be numerous team and individual prizes, plus the big one – the par-3 hole in one prize, which includes a new car sponsored by Honda Cars of Aiken.
