The tournament will be played at the nearby Marion Military Institute golf course and is open to all ministers serving Alabama Baptist Convention churches or agencies, including pastors, ministers of youth, music and education.

“We welcome ministers from across the state and look forward to a time of fellowship, good golf and moments to share news about Judson College,” said college president Dr. David Potts.

Last year’s winner was Ty Parten, pastor of Maplesville Baptist Church.

In addition to prizes offered by local businesses, there will be special hole-in-one prizes, including $10,000 cash, a set of irons, a Bose Wave music system and a Dell computer.

Additionally, every player will receive a coupon redeemable for a Magique Rescue wood.

The registration fee of $80 includes meals, lodging, linens, green fees and carts.

Registration forms are available on the Judson website (judson.edu) or by calling the Office of Development at 334-683-5109.
