The Co-Sponsors for this year’s tournament are Arkansas Concrete Co., Boar’s Head, Core-Mark, and Forrest City Medical Center. Hole sponsorships are currently available.
“We are grateful to the many sponsors and players who make our annual tournament possible,” said Dr. Cathie Cline, EACC President. “In the past, we have received support from many local and regional business and players who come out for a great day of golf. We hope golfers and anyone who enjoys golf will join us again this year for the annual event,” said Cline.

Single entries will be assigned to a team and teams will be flighted after the round. The number of flights will be determined by the number of entries. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three teams in each flight.
