2016 TRANSYLVANIA GOLF CLASSIC
Friday August 12, 2016 - University Club of Kentucky
The 19th annual Transylvania Golf classic held on August 12 at the University Club of Kentucky was once again a success!
Drawing a record-number of 118 golfers, over 30 foursomes, and sunny weather, the yearly event was instrumental in the annual event designed to foster financial support for the Transylvania Athletics Department.
The event was held at the University Club Big Blue Course in Lexington in a scramble format, which lent itself to a festive but competitive afternoon for all. The afternoon competition featured a collection of individual contests, including longest drive, closest to the pin, and straightest drive.
The overall winners of the scramble tournament were fittingly a team of Transylvania men’s golf alumni; Jantzen Latham, Ben Fister, Clay Hinton, and Justin Tereshko. The four participants were part of Transy teams that made NCAA Tournament appearances and the afternoon was a throwback to their college “glory days.”
The Golf Classic included a silent auction, ensuring those with higher scores on the links did not go home empty-handed, all while supporting Transy Athletics.
The Pioneers also provided a delicious lunch, served up by Noodles and Co. before the 1:00 p.m. shotgun start. Participating golfers finished off the day with a dinner courtesy of Jimmy Johns.
Keith Cecil, Assistant Athletic Director at Transylvania summed up the successful afternoon: "We had a fantastic event again this year. It was fun to have so many alumni and friends out for the event and in support of Transy athletics. The weather was fantastic, the food was great, and the course was in excellent condition. We look forward to having everyone back out again for next year's event."
A big thanks goes out to all participants, whose donations and contributions provide athletes at Transylvania with updated equipment and facilities, as well as funding to support their travel to away events, and the ability to staff home events effectively.
