The Piedmont College Alumni Association will hold the 25th annual Coach Cave Memorial Golf Tournament at The Orchard Golf and Country Club on Friday, May 31.

This year's tournament date has been moved from mid-April to the end of May in response to player feedback to take advantage of warmer weather and better golfing conditions, said tournament organizer Justin Scali, Associate Director of Institutional Advancement.

The tournament is named for the late Leon O'Neal Cave, who served as a coach and athletic director at Piedmont from 1948 to 1983. All proceeds from the tournament go to the Coach Cave Endowed Scholarship and to benefit the athletic programs.

Entry fees are $95 per player or $380 per foursome and include greens fee, cart, goody bag and lunch. Hole sponsorships are available for $150. To register for the tournament or for more information, call 706-778-8500 extension 1530; or visit

Registration will be from 10-11:30 a.m. for the four-person Lauderdale tournament, with lunch provided on the course. Golfers will have the chance to win several prizes, including a Hole-In-One prize of a new Buick provided by Hayes, Buick, Pontiac, GMC and Cadillac of Toccoa. Cash prizes will be given out to the top four teams. There will also be prizes for the closest to the pin, longest drive, putting contest, raffle winners and more!

Businesses that would like to be involved can sponsor teams, holes, banners, or golf carts. They are also welcome to donate items for goody bags and prize money.
