SAINT LEO, Fla. – Registration is underway for the 15th Annual Spirit of Saint Leo Golf Tournament, which will be held Monday, April 11, 2016, at the Lake Jovita Golf & Country Club.
The four-person scramble brings together coaches, alumni, former teammates, and friends for a chance to support Saint Leo Athletics and nearly 350 student-athletes who wear the Green and Gold. All proceeds from the event will assist with scholarships, capital projects, recruiting, leadership programming, travel, and other immediate needs as prioritized by the athletic department.
The tournament begins with a shotgun start at 1:00 p.m. on the South Course, in a scramble format that allows golfers of all abilities to play in a fun and competitive setting. The tournament will also include a variety of contests out on the course.
Entry into the tournament is $250.00 per person, which includes a choice of Adidas golf shoes or gift cards to local businesses.
In addition to the golf tournament, dinner with a silent and live auction will be held following the tournament in the Lake Jovita clubhouse that evening. Tickets to the dinner portion alone are available for $50.00, providing all Saint Leo friends, fans, and alumni a chance to interact with the coaches and others from Saint Leo Athletics.
“This is a vitally important event for Saint Leo Athletics, not only for the financial impact it has on keeping our programs among the best in all of Division II, but for the opportunity it provides for many of our alumni and supporters to connect – and in some cases, reconnect – with our teams,” said Francis X. Reidy, Saint Leo’s director of athletics. “The Spirit of Saint Leo Golf Tournament is a great time for people to really get to know our coaches, visit campus and see how we’ve grown, and get more engaged with programs that they’ve helped build in a variety of ways.”
If you cannot participate, any help you could provide in the form of auction or raffle items would be very appreciative. For your convenience, representatives from Saint Leo Athletics would be happy to pick up any auction items as well.
Please call or email Assistant Athletic Director Erin Mykleby at (352) 588-8223 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to assist in supporting Saint Leo University athletics through the golf tournament, sponsorship or donation of auction items. Thank you in advance for any consideration of our request and helping benefit the student-athlete experience at Saint Leo University.
