Buccaneer Backers Hosting Golf Scramble September 26

By  | 

BELLVILLE - The Blinn College Buccaneer Backer Club will host a four-person scramble Friday, September 26 at Bellville Golf and Recreation Club. Proceeds benefit the Blinn College athletic department.

The tournament kicks off with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. and includes one round of golf (cart included) and a fajita lunch that will be served at noon.

The full field will consist of nine paid teams. Mulligans will be available for $5 (limit one per player). The final day to register will be Sept. 23, and cash and check will be accepted. Checks should be payable to the Blinn College Foundation.

Entry is $60 for Buccaneer Backer Club members and $80 for non-members. Hole sponsorship is $100.

The Buccaneer Backers were formed to raise financial support and awareness for all the athletic programs at Blinn College. A modest contribution of $100 helps the Buccaneer Backers provide aid in funding postseason travel, equipment and facility upgrades.

Last season, the Buccaneers won the volleyball, cheer and dance national championships. Women’s basketball reached the Elite Eight at the NJCAA championship tournament and the baseball team placed fifth at the Junior College World Series.
