Tickets available for Legends Tour golf clinic

Friday, July 11, 2008

The Tri-County Board of Realtors® (TCBOR) and First National Banking Company (FNBC) have announced co-sponsorship of the upcoming TCBOR/FNBC Golf Clinic conducted by the LPGA Legends Tour, in conjunction with the LPGA Legends Tour Horseshoe Bend Invitational Pro-Am.

The golf clinic will be held Sept. 28 at The Golf Course on Turkey Mountain in Horseshoe Bend.

Advance tickets are $3 each, and kids 16-and-under are free if accompanied by an adult. Tickets may be purchased at any of the 13 TCBOR member's offices or at the main FNBC Bank location in Ash Flat, or any of the 10 FNBC branch locations.

Tickets at the gate will be $4 each.

A few of the LPGA Legends players already committed to play in this event include: Jan Stephenson, Amy Alcott, Kathy Whitworth, Pat Bradley, Cindy Rarick, Cindy Miller and Rosie Jones. Several of these golfing legends will be conducting the clinic.

Net proceeds from this event will be given to the Arkansas Children's Hospital.

"This is going to be a great clinic," said Nick Brown, President of TCBOR and a member of the administrative committee (in charge of housing) of the Horseshoe Bend Invitational. "There has never been an event like this in Arkansas and we are fortunate to have so many great Hall of Fame Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour players visit our area and put on a fantastic show. And it is all for such a good cause -- The Arkansas Children's Hospital."

Brown also stated that TCBOR/FNBC will have a Pro-Am team competing in the Pro-Am event on Sept. 29. The team will be made up of four amateurs (male or female) and will play 18 holes with one of the Legends. There will be a minimum of 20 LPGA Legends and teams competing. "We are going to have a drawing for our four team members," Brown said. "We are selling chances for $60 each (or two chances for $100). We'll put all chances into a hat and draw out four names. Those four people can either play with a Legend on the team or give that privilege to someone of their choice. Purchasing a chance will also get you into the drawing party BBQ to be held at the North Golf Course in Cherokee Village at 4 p.m. on Aug. 23. Additional guest tickets for the drawing party BBQ will be $10 each, with all net proceeds going to Arkansas Children's Hospital."

In addition to winning a spot on the TCBOR/FNBC Pro-Am team, the four players will also be attending the Pro-Am dinner and drawing party on Sept. 28, which will be the drawing to see which LPGA Legends Tour Pro will play with each team. They will also receive a commemorative gift bag, invitations to the golf clinic and two days of interaction with the Legends of Golf.

Chances may be purchased at any FNBC branch bank located in Ash Flat, Ash Flat Wal-Mart, Batesville, Cherokee Village, Hardy, Highland, Horseshoe Bend, Mammoth Spring, Melbourne, Mountain Home and Salem. Chances are also available at the following TCBOR member's offices: King-Rhodes & Associates Real Estate, Cherokee Village; Paul Garner Realty, King Agency Real Estate and Rapid Real Estate & Rentals in Hardy; United Country Cotham & Company Real Estate, Ozark Gateway Realty, Southern Pines Realty and Century 21 Combs & Associates Real Estate, Ash Flat/Highland; Allen American Realty, Mammoth Spring; Carriage Trade Realty, That's Me Realty, Scenic Realty Company and The Bend Realty Associates, Horseshoe Bend.
