The 2010 VCU Shootout, presented by Verizon Wireless, brings some of the very best collegiate golfers in the nation to Central Virginia for 54 holes of exciting competition.
One of the highlights of the VCU Shootout is the College-Am, presented by Cleveland Golf. It will be held on Sunday, Sept. 26 at Hermitage Country Club on their challenging Manakin Course. The College-Am will pair a team of three "amateurs" with an outstanding player from one of the teams in this year's Shootout.
The College-Am includes lunch, range balls, tee gifts, golf and a post-round awards banquet, as well as an opportunity to compete alongside some of college golf's best and brightest stars. Registration, lunch and the range open at 11:30 a.m., and we will tee off at 1 p.m. with a shotgun start. A cocktail reception, dinner and our awards program will begin immediately after the round.
There are a number of packages, as well as sponsorship options , available for groups and individuals. Download the brochure to reserve your spot! Proceeds from the College Am will benefit VCU Golf.
"The VCU Shootout is really the core of VCU Golf," said Rams' Head Coach Matt Ball. "The College Am enables us to run almost a tour event for college players, which makes it an exceptional event. It's better than most college tournaments are. It keeps the teams and kids coming back and many of these schools have another similar event I can reciprocate with, and that's how we have built one of the top 50 or 60 schedules in the country. So, we're always playing against top 20 and top 30 schools every week that we compete."
The field for this year's VCU Shootout includes Charlotte, Richmond, East Carolina, Iowa State, James Madison, UNC Greensboro, UNC Wilmington, Liberty, VCU, Virginia Tech, Mercer, Wake Forest, Old Dominion and Wichita State. Six teams in the field qualified for the NCAA Tournament in 2010.
