BAYTOWN, TX — The Lee College Athletic Department invites local golfers to hit the links and help raise money to support Lee College athletes at its annual golf tournament, which will also include a special award ceremony honoring an outstanding community member.

Registration for the 2017 golf tournament will begin at 7 a.m., Friday, June 23, at the Eagle Pointe Golf Club in Mont Belvieu. Participants will have breakfast provided by tournament sponsor Chick-fil-A of Baytown before an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start, then return to the clubhouse for a catered lunch courtesy of sponsor Follett Corporation. Golfers can also compete in “Closest to the Pin” and “Longest Drive” contests on the course and enjoy door prizes and a silent auction.

The Lee College Legends Award will be presented to Taylor Henckel, a graduate of Nederland High School and Lamar University who owns and operates Chick-fil-A of Baytown. Established in 2008, the award recognizes an individual who has had a positive impact on Lee College and the athletics department.

“Taylor has been a great friend and contributor to the advancement of Lee College Athletics,” said Roy Champagne, head coach of Lee College basketball team. “The tournament is a wonderful opportunity for our community to recognize one of our local leaders as we have fun and raise money for student-athletes. I encourage all golfers to join us.”

The entry fee of $100 per player or $400 per team includes greens fees, a golf cart, range balls, all meals and a team photo. Super tickets for mulligans and a pay-or-pick hole will be available for purchase in advance or at the door.
