Paine College will host its seventh annual Paine College Golf Tournament on Monday, August 31, 2015, at the Jones Creek Golf Club located in Evans, Georgia. 

Jim Dent, Senior PGA Tour, will serve as the Honorary Chair, benefiting the Paine College Golf Program. “I am so pleased that this tournament is approaching its seventh year,” said Jim Dent. “It has been a great success over the years, raising over $140,000 for the College’s golf program.” 

It will include brunch along with various competitions held in conjunction with the tournament for prizes, including hole-in-one, longest drive and closest to the pin contests.  Following the tournament, there will be an awards ceremony and recognition dinner. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. ET, followed by a shotgun start at 10 a.m. 

The Paine golf program is one of the most successful golf programs in the Southeast. In 2012, the team won the Southern Intercollegiate Athletics Conference (SIAC) Golf Classic.  The Lions successfully closed out the 2013 as back-to-back Conference Golf Champions. In 2014, team member Jerrell Hubbard represented the Lions in the 28th Annual PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship held May 9th-11th at the PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida. 

Golfers can register for the tournament by emailing lcollins@paine.edu, calling 706-821-8428 or sending the registration form by mail or completing it online.  The cost for the 18-hole tournament (cart included), awards dinner and show is $125 per player ($375 per team).
