The South Plains College Physical Therapist Student Association will host the Fifth Annual PTASA Golf Classic on April 1.

The event will be held at Shadow Hills Golf Course in Lubbock, with registration beginning at 9:30 a.m. The cost is $160 per team, which includes, lunch, cart, and range balls. Mulligans will be available for purchase.

The two-man scramble begins at 11 a.m. with a shotgun start. The tournament will feature several contests and games, including Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, Wheel of Fortune, and Buy Your Shot. Lunch will be served after the rounds.

Participation sponsorships are available, which range from $125 to $1,200.

Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the PTASA and pay for travel to the Texas Physical Therapist Association Annual Conference in Corpus Christi in the fall of 2017.

“At this annual conference, we professionally develop, get the opportunity to meet potential employers, get to see presentations ranging from how to write your resume, interviewing tips, and different treatment modalities and what works best for different types of ailments,” said Shelby Nail, president of the PTASA. “I know the potential that it has to help our students. It’s going to be great for our students to go and meet other PTA’s and PT’s across the state, and talk about the things that are affecting our state.”
