Nash Community College has announced that professional athlete Justin Moose will assist with the College’s 29th Annual Student Scholarship Golf Classic being held at Benvenue Country Club Friday, October 5. Moose is ranked 13th in the world with a 468 yard longest drive in competition, 147 mph swing speed and 219 mph ball speed.
The annual tournament raises funds to assist deserving NCC students pursuing their educational goals. At the tournament, Justin Moose will be on a Par 5 hole where any team making a qualifying donation on his tee box will have the opportunity to win a three-day trip to Pebble Beach in Monterey, CA. Moose will drive the ball 400+ yards giving contestants a chance to hole out from his drive making a Double Eagle, Albatross or Hole in two and win.
The winner will receive American Airlines airfare for two to San Francisco and two nights at Pebble Beach Lodge plus three rounds of golf for two at Pebble Beach, Spyglass and Spanish Bay. The trip value is $5,000.
Additionally, the 29th Annual Student Scholarship Golf Classic planning committee will host a pre-tournament party on Thursday, October 4 in the NCC Business and Industry Center from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.
