Leadership Kingsport announces 4th annual Dennis Phillips Golf Tournament

Kingsport Chamber • Sep 6, 2018 at 3:18 PM

KINGSPORT — The Kingsport Chamber Leadership Kingsport program has announced the 4th annual golf tournament named in honor of former Kingsport Mayor Dennis Phillips.

The tournament tees off Friday, October 19, 2018 at Cattails at MeadowView.

Registration is 9 a.m. with tee time at 10 a.m.

The event is sponsored by RICOH.

Proceeds from the event benefit Leadership Kingsport.

“Mayor Phillips has been an exemplary leader and has done so much for this community,” Kingsport Chamber President & CEO Miles Burdine said. “We created this golf tournament a few years ago as another way to raise funds for this vital program. We know it will be another fun event and, though while not a golfer, Dennis will have a great time supporting a program that’s always been very important to him and this city.”

The format for the tournament will be a modified scramble. Each team will hit four tee shots. The best drive will be selected and players will then hit their second shots. Each player will then play his or her own ball for the remainder of the hole. The lowest individual score on the hole will then be recorded as the team score. To keep the pace of play going, each player is asked to pick up once he or she has reached a bogey count on the hole.

Team awards will be given as well as awards for hole competitions for longest drive, most accurate drive and closest to the pin.

Cost to enter is $400 per team, with four players per team.

Hole sponsorships are available for $150.

The Dennis Discount Package, which includes a team of four and a hole sponsorship, is $500.
