UTC Basketball Hosts Golf Outing On Aug. 19

Friday, July 19, 2013

Chattanooga Mocs Head Basketball Coach Will Wade has been busy over his first couple of months on the job. Scheduling, recruiting, hiring assistants…he’s been non-stop since day one. That hasn’t stopped him from planning the little things.

The 2013 Chattanooga Basketball Golf Outing is one of those. It is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 19, at Lookout Mountain Golf Club.

“This will be a great day for our program,” Wade stated. “It’s an opportunity to interact with our loyal fans and alums and spread a little ‘Chaos’ in a fun environment. It also serves as a necessary fund-raising event to enhance the experience we are able to provide student-athletes – athletically, academically and socially.”

Registration is from 10:30 a.m.-Noon with lunch starting at 11 a.m. The four-person, select shot format begins at 12:30 p.m., with a shotgun start. There are a myriad of prizes longest drive, closest to the hole and a car from Marshal Mize Ford for a hole-in-one. An awards dinner follows and a silent auction is available as well.
