The 4th annual B.F. Killingsworth Gator Golf Classic is coming Monday, May 19 to the Madison County Golf and Country Club. The namesake for the golfing event, B.F., has been the driving force of the Madison County Gator Club Scholarship fund for more than 13 years and has raised more than $40,000 in scholarship funds to enable students to attend the University of Florida.
More than 30 graduates of UF have been students from Madison County that received Gator Club scholarships. This past year, the Madison Gator Club awarded nine Madison students with scholarships to the university.
If you are interested in playing in this year’s classic, there are still spots available for the 9 a.m., and 1 p.m., tee times. The event will also have a special treat: Walt’s Live Oak Ford will be sponsoring a Hole in One, with the lucky winner receiving a 2014 F150 truck. Other great items will be given away as well.
All proceeds from the tournament will go towards the scholarship fund. We appreciate all the sponsors and players because without your support, B.F.’s dream would not be able to continue. For more information contact Stefanie Thomas at (850) 464-1177. Go Gators!
