The Texas A&M – Corpus Christi Baseball program will host its second annual Golf Tournament in conjunction with the annual Alumni Game this weekend in Corpus Christi. On Saturday, teams of two will take part in the golf tournament at Gabe Lozano Sr. Golf Center.
Registration for the event is currently open with 15 spots left for teams in the tournament. There are individual and team packages, along with hole sponsorships available throughout the course.
The lowest individual entry is $80 for the "single" that includes golf and lunch, all the way to $300 for a "triple" which includes golf, lunch, adidas Islanders polo, adidas Islanders hat, a subscription to the Islanders Baseball Weekly E-Newsletter and two season tickets for the 2013 season.
Team packages range from a $135 for the "home run" package, golf and lunch for two, up to a "walk-off home run" for $350, which is the same as the "triple" but for two people.
Fans and alumni alike will take part in the event, with registration starting at 11 a.m. on the day of the event, and a shotgun start set for 1 p.m. after lunch and a silent auction. Winners will be announced at 6 p.m. after the conclusion of all rounds at the tourney.
On Sunday the alumni will gather for a 10 a.m. check-in and breakfast before batting practice begins at 10:30 that morning and the actual game starting at 12 p.m. that day.
The weekend will serve as a venue to meet, develop and strengthen relationships with the current coaching staff, baseball alumni, fans and friends of the program for all of those involved.
