Benefiting UTK Alumni Chapters Nationwide

PATRIOTS POINT | CHARLESTON, SC

MARCH 3, 2018

Charleston UT Knoxville Alumni Chapter invites you to join fellow alumni and friends in beautiful Charleston, SC for the Inaugural Vol Nation Golf Classic on Saturday, March 3rd at Patriots Point Links on the Charleston Harbor. The goal of the event is to bring alumni and friends together in an effort to raise awareness and scholarship funds for the UT Knoxville Alumni Chapters across the country. Each foursome represents their sponsored alumni chapter and a $100 contribution will be made to the chapter’s local scholarship fund just for registering a team. We want the event to be diverse in the representation of the different chapters across the country so if you can’t make the trip please consider reaching out to friends or family that might be willing and able to represent your respective alumni chapter. If you’re not a golfer, don’t worry! There will be an award reception and after party with an open bar, food, and fun and games to keep the friendly competition and prize giveaways going after the golf tournament. 

THE GOLF COURSE

Award Winning Patriots Point Links on the Charleston Harbor

Situated on the edge of Charleston Harbor and offering spectacular views of the city, Fort Sumter, and ships arriving from all over the world, Patriots Point has been a favorite place to play for local Charleston golfers and resort guests for years. It’s located in Mount Pleasant at the foot of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge and just five minutes from downtown. Any golf trip to South Carolina’s historic city of Charleston is not complete without a round at this memorable harbor side golf course.

THE AFTER PARTY

Harbor Pavilion at Patriots Point: One of a Kind Waterfront Venue

Following the golf tournament an award reception and after party will be held at Patriots Point’s beautiful 18th hole Pavilion on the Charleston Harbor. The Pavilion at Patriots Point offers a setting and venue that is completely unique. The venue offers a majestic setting that includes both a ceremonial lawn and reception area looking over the Charleston Harbor. The entertainment will likely include an open bar, hors d’ouvres, dinner buffet, raffle, and games. Specific details are still to be determined.

TOURNAMENT PLAY

Each Foursome Represents Their Sponsored Alumni Chapter

The Vol Nation Golf Classic supports a friendly competitive format. Each foursome will follow team scramble rules for the right to take home a perpetual trophy to show off at their chapter’s events. A $100 contribution will be made to the chapter’s local scholarship fund just for registering a team, and additional scholarship fund and personal prizes will be available to teams that help ‘flood the harbor’ by wearing UT orange. Mulligans, red tees, and throws will be available for purchase for a competitive advantage.

TOURNAMENT PRIZES

Vol Nation Trophy

The winning team will receive a free entry to the 2019 Vol Nation Golf Classic and take home a ‘Perpetual Trophy’ (traveling trophy) to be held and showed off by the sponsored chapter until they defend the right to keep it in the following year’s event.

Embroidered Jerseys

In an effort to make the event rewarding for players of all skill levels, we will be awarding embroidered football jerseys of some of Tenessee Football’s all-time greats to randomly placed teams. For example, the 16th place team will receive a Manning jersey.

Other Awards

Long drive and closest to the pin prizes will be awarded. Additional scholarship funds will be donated to top finishing teams. Teams must wear UT orange to be eligible for prizes. Orange Vol Nation golf polos will be available for purchase at the event.

ADDITIONAL PRIZES

Raffle and After Party Games to Keep the Prize Giveaways Going

If you’re not participating in the golf tournament, or if you’ve caught the competitive contest bug there is still fun and games to be had during the after party. We’re planning interactive contests like a cornhole tournament and Vols Trivia to keep the prize giveaways going after the golf tournament. There will also be a raffle with autographed memorabilia and other great items following dinner and the award reception.

UTK ALUMNI CHAPTERS

The 56 Alumni Chapters Embody the Meaning of Tennessee ‘Volunteers’

The national efforts of the UTK Alumni Chapter Program continues to strengthen the reach and impact of Vol Nation. The 53 chapters across the country serve as active representatives of our alma mater outside of Knoxville, which is symbolic to the historic reasons for why we were named the University of Tennessee ‘Volunteers’. These official extensions of the university cheer on the Vols together at TV viewing parties and enjoy other exciting programs and networking events. They also spread the Volunteer spirit by giving back to their communities and raising scholarship funds to support local students that choose to attend the University of Tennessee. One of the challenges the chapters encounter is reaching the alumni and supporters of UT in their respective areas. The goal of the Vol Nation Golf Classic is to create exposure and get more people involved in the chapters that are active in their areas, or even inspire leaders to establish new chapters if one isn’t present.
