Roane State Community College will bring back men’s golf and add women’s golf for the Fall 2018 season.
The effort is led by volunteer Chris Griffin of Oak Ridge, who played golf for Roane State in the late 1970s. Griffin will also serve as golf coach for the 2018-19 academic year.
Griffin has organized a golf tournament to raise funds for the new teams. The tournament will be held on Monday, June 4 at 2 p.m. at Oak Ridge Country Club.
The tournament will feature a four-person SWAT format and costs $600 per team (one handicapped division). The entry fee includes range balls, green fees and cart, on-course refreshments, and lunch.
Business sponsorships starting at $100 are also available through the Roane State Foundation.
“Coach Eddie Liskovec was the men’s golf coach during my career at Roane State and was instrumental in ensuring our collegiate experience was a positive one. I hope I can provide the same leadership to these upcoming 2018 student athletes as was provided for me and my teammates while at Roane State,” Griffin said.
