Golf Tournament in Fayetteville to Benefit Motlow College Foundation

April 18, 2012

While visions of "The Masters" are still fresh in the minds of golfers, it's time for local teams to sign up for the 21st Annual Charles Gleghorn Invitational Golf Tournament to be held May 18 at the Fayetteville Golf and Country Club. The tournament is sponsored by the Bank of Lincoln County and benefits the Motlow College Foundation.

The Gleghorn Invitational is open to all golfers and will consist of two rounds with shotgun starts at 8 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Breakfast is available at 7:15 a.m. and lunch will be served at noon. In addition to cash prizes for first, second and third places for each of three flights, special prizes will be given for closest to the pin on holes three and five and longest drive on hole four for both the morning and afternoon rounds. A special opportunity on hole 12 allows for half of the proceeds to be paid to an individual winner with the other half going to the Motlow College Foundation.

One of the bigger prizes, which has yet to be won in the tournament's 20 year history, is a new car. Automobile dealerships in Fayetteville have taken turns over the years sponsoring the hole-in-one competition on hole 5. This year Howard Bentley Buick GMC of Fayetteville will present a 2012 Buick Verano to any golfer who sinks the amazing shot.

Jan Rogers, director of advancement at Motlow, praised Mr. Gleghorn and the Bank of Lincoln County for their continued commitment to Motlow students. She said, "The tournament has provided scholarship dollars over the past two decades for students who may not have been able to attend college without their help."

Entry fee for the tournament is $110 per person or $440 per team. The entry includes golf, cart, food, greens fee, mulligans and prizes. The rain date for the event is May 25.
