Lloyd Sowell Memorial Golf Tournament

SAVE THE DATE: May 22, 2020 

This year's Lloyd Sowell Memorial Golf Tournament will take place on Friday, May 25, 2018, Quail Ridge Golf Course. Similar to last year, the tournament will be a four player scramble with a shotgun start. The entry fee is $100 per player ($400.00 per team). Entry fee includes greens fee, cart, refreshments on all par 3 holes, dinner (after the tournament), flight awards and door prizes. There are several individual challenges throughout the course such as the longest drive, most accurate drive and closest to the pin plus three hole-in-one opportunities for a chance to win $1,000 cash.

The Lloyd Sowell Memorial Golf Tournament is currently the only fundraiser the Hall of Fame sponsors. For the last several years we have had no major sponsors for our organization, so this gives the golf tournament increased significance. All profits from this event help fund the induction banquet held each December. We cannot thank our sponsors enough for contributing to the success of the tournament and the banquet.

Since 1970, people like you have generously helped the Memphis Amateur Sports Hall of Fame recognize deserving candidates for induction into this prestigious organization. The Hall of Fame also participates in community outreach programs that promote athletics in the Memphis Metropolitan area. In addition, the Hall of Fame awards scholarships to deserving student/athletes at our annual awards banquet. This past year we were able to recognize 4 deserving students with scholarship aid.

Hole Sponsorship

In addition to the entry fee, there are sponsorship opportunities. As a $100 hole sponsor, your name and/or the name of your company will be displayed at two events - at the golf tournament and in our awards and induction banquet program. If you would like to sponsor more than one hole, you are encouraged to do so and please indicate below the information that you would like displayed on each sign. Please respond no later than Friday May 17, 2019 so that we can insure that your sign is properly prepared.

The Memphis Amateur Sports Hall of Fame is a private not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization and our tax I.D. number is 780099823.

Please feel free to contact Lynn Alford at lalford@clayandlandws.com if you have any questions. We hope we can count on your continued support.
