RiverKings Golf Scramble Coming Up


Fun Sponsorship Opportunities are Still Available, Too


Southaven---Golfers can sign up now for the Second Annual RiverKings Golf Scramble, set for Friday, October 7 at The Club at North Creek on Stateline Road in Southaven. The event will benefit the Jr. StreetKings and the Jr. RiverKings youth hockey programs. 


This year’s format is similar to last year’s as the tournament will be a four-person scramble.  Teams can sign up to play in the morning flight at 8 a.m. or the afternoon flight teeing off at 1:30 p.m.  The cost is $500 dollars per team with a portion of that being tax deductible.  Teams can also elect to have a RiverKings player or staff member as their fourth player. 


The registration fee includes green fee, cart, range balls, large goody bag, golf shirt, breakfast, lunch and dinner.  There will also be several on-course contests including longest drive, closest to the pin, and a chance to win a brand new Ford Mustang from Country Ford with a hole-in-one on a designated hole.  Plus, there will be a $5,000 putting contest on the practice putting green.


The post-tournament dinner will start at 7 p.m. and include the announcement of prize winners, raffle winners and a live auction of donated items.  Non-golfers can take part in the dinner for a $20 donation.  


The Club at North Creek is a fun, links-style golf course that is perfect for players of all skill levels.  To make registration easier, a brochure is available via a link on the RiverKings homepage at www.RiverKings.com.  Golfers can also call the RiverKings’ offices at 662-342-1755 or stop by the team’s office at the DeSoto Civic Center for information. 


Businesses and corporations can support the tournament by sponsoring such features as the putting contest, practice range, beverage cart, on-course contests, or a tee box.  New this year is the green flag sponsorship.  The sponsor’s name and/or logo will be featured on the actual flag for that hole and will be theirs to keep after the tournament. 


Interested businesses and corporations can use the brochure at www.RiverKings.com or call the RiverKings offices at 662-342-1755 for sponsorship information.           



The RiverKings 32-game 2005-2006 home schedule opens on October 28 against  the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs. Season tickets for the 2005-2006 RiverKings’ season are available now. For season ticket information, call the RiverKings at 662-342-1755 and ask for the sales department or stop by the DCC during business hours.
