Today: From Rome Floyd Parks and Recreation: A long-standing golf tradition returns to the links at Stonebridge Golf Course on Friday, Oct. 8 as the Willard Nixon Sports Hall of Fame Golf Tournament sponsored by Rome Orthopedic Center tees off. The event features a four-man scramble with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Team entry fees are $325. The fee covers all greens fees, cart fees, range balls and a pre-event lunch. All money raised from the golf tournament goes to help fund the ROC Pinson Family Student Athlete Scholarship.

Along with team fees, hole sponsorships are being offered for $100 per hole.  This event also features several golfers who are members of the Rome-Floyd Sports Hall of Fame, allowing others the chance to see and talk to some local sports legends. The scholarship has helped distribute more than $20,000 in scholarship money to local students for more than 20 years. For more information or to download the entry form, please visit rfpra.com.
