Hello friends, Jim Nantz here to welcome you to one of the great days in sports, and the grandest stage of them all. As Spring begins to fill the air, and the azaleas turn that magical shade of purple in full bloom, our minds once again turn back to the golf course where legends become champions.
So many greats of the game have walked these impeccably manicured fairways and greens, and their ghosts surrounds you every time you move the stake to mark your ball in the long drive contest or wait for the cart girls to bring you more beer. There are many golf tournaments, but there is only one that is a Tradition Unlike Any Other.
Welcome to 11th Annual Edition of the USF Volleyball Golf Tournament.
Once again this year the magical subdivision of River Hills Country Club will play host to this spectacle. Golfers can qualify either by winning a PGA Tournament throughout the year, or by paying $150 per player or $600 per foursome. Included is a gift bag filled with prizes, as well as that signature article of clothing that is identified with this tournament and River Hills so exclusively; the green USF Volleyball Under Armour polo.
The Champions Lunch and Dinner will also be included, as well as all the beverages you can drink. This includes the adult beverages that have become synonymous with this great event. Players will also participate in a raffle that has become so legendary it has taken on a life of its own, with an array of prizes that would make anyone feel overwhelmed.
So join us on April 20th at 12pm as we renew this wonderful tradition once again. Voodoo Five would love to get a couple of foursomes together of our loyal and wonderful patrons, so let us know in the comments if you can join us.
