Early Registration for Georgia-Florida Golf Classic Running Through August

From Robbie Burns, because it's never too early to plan for the next GA/fla game:

JEKYLL ISLAND, GA - The Georgia-Florida Golf Classic is two months away, and early registration remains open through August 31 for the 35th annual event that is played on Jekyll Island's three 18-hole golf courses, October 29-31

Early registration is $250 per person and participants receive a practice round on Wednesday, two tournament rounds, Wednesday night Tailgate Party and Thursday night Rockin' Seafood Feast.  On tournament days, breakfast is included and Bubba Burgers will provide lunch.

"During Georgia-Florida week, The Classic is the premiere event on the Golden Isles," stated Johnny Paulk, PGA Professional and the event's founder and director. "You cannot find another tournament that offers more for the price.  The Classic fills up fast, so spots are limited."

Annually, The Classic averages between 350-400 players hailing from more than 10 states.  Again this year, 16 former Georgia and Florida football players, eight from each school, will serve as The Classic's celebrities.  Last year, the group was highlighted by former Super Bowl champion Rodney Hampton (UGA), and longtime NFL wide receiver Willie Jackson (UF).
