Students from the sport management undergraduate event management class in Old Dominion University's Darden College of Education will host a charity golf classic Monday, Oct. 25, with proceeds to benefit Young Audiences - Arts for Learning - Virginia.

The 18-hole, four-player scramble at Greenbrier Country Club in Chesapeake will begin with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Entry is $125 per player, or $500 per foursome.

Every participant will receive 18 holes of golf with a cart, lunch and a gourmet dinner, snacks on the course, two premium gifts, entry in a putting contest, a raffle ticket, and more. The tournament also features a hole-in-one contest, with a chance to win a car.

ODU's sport management students are hosting the event to gain hands-on experience and in the process develop knowledge and professional practice from planning and running a special sports event.

Sponsorship opportunities for the event include corporate hole sponsorships, cart sponsorships and putting green, chipping area and driving range sponsorships.
