Hedgcoxe's 7th Annual Golf Tournament

We are celebrating Hedgcoxe’s 25th Birthday this year, and looking to make this our best golf tournament yet! We are hoping to bring back many of our former families to reminisce about the good old Hedgcoxe days, before we had to worry about dating, driving, colleges, etc. And we of course home to see many current Hedgcoxe families coming out to join in the fun.

The tournament will be on Friday, April 29th at the Twin Creeks Golf Club in Allen. As always, this will be a four person scramble with a shotgun start at 1:30. There will be a BURGER BUFFET prior to the tournament, so don’t bother eating lunch before coming out. Registration will again be only $75, with loads of goodies included in this fee.

We will begin accepting registrations soon, but we wanted to get word out so everyone can block off their calendar, as well as start talking to family and friends, helping spread the word. Further information, as well as the link to our Golf Tournament website, will be sent out soon.

There are also many great sponsorship opportunities. If you work for a company, or own one, that would benefit from advertisement in our community, we have numerous options to choose from such as tournament sponsorships, goodie bag donations, prize donations and more.

So mark your calendars and help spread the word. The golf tournament is always a great afternoon, and this year will be our best yet.

Email or call (214-777-1031) if you have any questions.
