Annual Ed Lannom, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament

Scheduled for Sept. 10, proceeds to benefit the DSCC athletic scholarships and program costs

Dyersburg State Community College (DSCC) will host its annual Ed Lannom, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament Friday afternoon, Sept. 10, at The Lenox Event and Golf Company at the Farms in Dyersburg.

Last year’s winning team was the City of Newbern, which included team members Zach Walden, Jason Roberts, Steven Pennington and Mark Madden. They were awarded the coveted crystal College Cup that has been on display at City Hall in Newbern for the past year.

In addition to the College Cup, participants will have the chance to win prizes in various contests including a putting contest, a hole-in-one contest, a longest drive contest, and a closest-to-the-pin contest. Dr. Karen Bowyer, president of DSCC, will serve as “Celebrity Putter” to give players one more chance to make that par, birdie or eagle putt. Back by popular demand will be the “Eagle Swing,” in which golfers purchase a chance for a member of DSCC’s baseball or softball team to take the first swing from the tee box. The Lenox Event and Golf Company will again sponsor the opportunity for the top two winners of the closest-to-the-pin contest to become $1 million richer by hitting a hole-in-one.

Everyone who registers and pays to play by Wednesday, Sept. 8, will be entered into a drawing to win four free rounds of golf at The Lenox Event and Golf Company. Door prizes and a new grill will be awarded to winners in a random drawing at the end of the tournament.

The cost for a team of four is $400 and includes a catered lunch between 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Cash prizes will be awarded to first, second and third-place teams in two flights. Registration forms are available at The Lenox Event and Golf Company. They can also be downloaded electronically at or by contacting 731-286-3349 or
