Career Classic Golf Tournament to benefit student career services


Contact 1: Erin Chesnut

MARTIN, Tenn. — The University of Tennessee at Martin Office of Career Planning and Development invites all local golfers to participate in the inaugural Career Classic Golf Tournament, Oct. 5, at the Persimmon Hills Golf Course in Sharon. Event proceeds will be used to better serve UT Martin students seeking internships and job placement through the office.

Tournament check-in will begin at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start at 10. Lunch will be provided to participants at noon along with prizes for the first, second and third-place teams. Door prizes will also be available at the end of the event.

The registration fee is $75 for an individual and $300 for a four-person team. Individual participants will be assigned to a team by the tournament director. The fee includes green fees, car rental, range balls and lunch.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available for businesses and individuals who would like to be recognized during the tournament. Sponsorships begin at $200 to sponsor a cart or hole and advance to “diamond sponsor,” which earns a business logo placement, website advertising space, recognition in media outreach and two participating teams, among other benefits.

The UT Martin Office of Career Planning and Development helps students explore career options, engage with the community, gain experience through internships, and enhance career readiness through job-search skills and strategies. Proceeds from the tournament will be used to help pay for career-assessment tests such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and the Strong Interest Inventory Test, as well as offset the cost of travel and housing for distance internship placements.

Pre-payment for participants and sponsors is due by Oct. 2 and should be made payable to UT Martin Career Planning and Development. Participants can register online at or by contacting Mark McCloud, office director, at 731-881-7712 or

The Persimmon Hills Golf Course is located at 1696 Rock Hill Road in Sharon.
