The legendary rivalry between Pulaski County and Radford City is moving to the golf course once again.
The second annual “Battle of the Bridge” golf tournament hosted by the Pete Dye River Course of Virginia Tech will be played on Sunday, Oct. 24, 2021.
Teams will tee off at 1 p.m. with lunch served at noon. Teams register to play for either side of the bridge, the Pulaski County Cougars or the Radford Bobcats.
The beautiful Pete Dye River Course is the perfect place to spend a fall afternoon of friendly competition. The tournament supports the Access to Community College Education (ACCE) program at New River Community College (NRCC). The side with the most points gets bragging rights, but both sides win, as tournament proceeds will support ACCE students from both Radford and Pulaski County.
Registration is open for teams of four at $360 per team. Players who do not have a full team can contact the golf course to be added to a team. For those who can’t attend the event, sponsorship opportunities are also available starting at $150. To register or sponsor, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (540)633-1807. More details are available at www.petedyerivercourse.com.
ACCE at NRCC is an economic development public/private partnership that makes college available debt-free to high school and home-schooled graduates by funding NRCC tuition for two years. ACCE will support the youth of participating counties by making college within reach. With the support of ACCE, students will graduate from NRCC prepared to join the workforce or transfer to a four-year university without college debt.
