Bud Kivett Golf Championship Celebrates 30th Year
This year High Point Regional and sponsor, Bank of North Carolina, will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Bud Kivett Golf Championship. Each year, in memory of Bud Kivett’s early death from heart failure, some of the area’s best golfers come out to honor Kivett for the sport he loved. Additionally, the event provides much needed scholarships for cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation through the Heart Strides program at High Point Regional Health System.
Named for the 5-time winner of the former City Tournament, the Bud Kivett Memorial City Golf Championship will be held on May 6th & 7th at Blair Park and Oak Hollow Golf Courses. The 36-hole stroke play event is open to amateurs 16 years of age and older and is open to the first 216 golfers who enter.
The Bank of North Carolina will also sponsor the Triad Inter-Club Challenge, offering golf clubs throughout the area an opportunity to send their best golfers to the tournament and earn the Challenge Cup.
This year’s entry fee for the tournament is $30. Entry deadline is April 28.For information and registration, call 878-6293 or go to www.givetohighpointregional.com
