Get ready for the most amazing round of golf you have ever experienced! On November 16th & 17th, the longest hitting golfers on the planet come to Eagle’s Landing Country Club for the 2012 Dixie Classic Pro Longdrive Event. The event will benefit the Green Beret Foundation, supporting wounded Army Special Forces warriors and their families.
Friday, November 16th, we kick off the event with a Pro-Am scramble golf tournament. Each 3-person team will play with a Pro Longdriver as a 4-person team. During the tournament, we will have qualifications for chance to compete on Saturday in the Amateur Longdrive Competition. Players will also be competing for hole-in-one, closest to the pin and putting contest prizes. There will be an awards banquet following the tournament.
Saturday, November 17th, the Pro Longdrivers take the tee. We begin in the morning with the elimination rounds narrowing down the field of competitors to the final 8 pros. At 4:30 pm, the finals begin with a shootout until the winner is crowned as the 2012 Dixie Classic Champion. The 4 longest hitting amateurs who qualified during Friday’s pro-am will also compete in front of the crowd for the amateur Longdrive competition. Admission to the Longdrive event on Saturday is free for all spectators. Raffle prizes will be given away prior to the finals, along with hole-in-one contests.
