Team Openings Remain for Hillcat Hacker Invitational, Nov. 11

The second annual Hillcat Hacker Invitational takes place on the Rogers State University Claremore campus Friday, Nov. 11, as University students, friends and alumni tee off a weekend of RSU Homecoming 2011 events.

The Hillcat Hacker Invitational is a game for everyone. Pros, amateurs and hackers alike can play amidst the hazards of RSU's scenic campus. The game features a one-of-a-kind 18-hole golf course that takes golfers on a tour of RSU's historical buildings, monuments and green spaces. Players will use special non-destructive golf balls.

"The Hillcat Hacker Invitational is a truly unique event that is a lot of fun for everyone, even if you haven't picked up a golf club in years," said event chair Clarice Doyle. "We are even giving prizes for best argyle outfit and most patriotic."

The individual entry fee is $50 per player or $200 for a team of four. This includes golf, a t-shirt and lunch. RSU students can enter for $25 per player.

Participants will compete in a four-person scramble while navigating around historic RSU landmarks such as Preparatory Hall and the Thomas Jefferson statue.

Trophies will be awarded to the winning team for each flight. Great prizes, including a PlayStation 3 and Nintendo DSi, as well as two gift baskets – Hillcat Pride and Around Town – will be given away by the process of a random drawing at the conclusion of the tournament. The event is held in conjunction with Hillcat Homecoming 2011 and all proceeds will benefit the RSU Alumni Association and Hillcats athletics.

Participants can bring one golf club of their choice or choose from a selection of clubs provided on site.
