April 5, 2013


The annual Red Raider Open, one of the most anticipated events of the year, has been scheduled for June 1 and sponsorship registration is now available.

The Red Raider Open, hosted by the Red Raider Club, is a one-day golf tournament that benefits the Red Raider Scholarship Fund and provides annual assistance to nearly 400 student-athletes.

"The Red Raider Open is always an exciting time to play a great round of golf for a special cause, particularly this year with the addition of our beautiful new clubhouse and team facility at The Rawls Course," said Associate Athletics Director Amy Heard. "We've worked hard with our partners and The Rawls Course to make sure this is an event that provides extreme value to our donors and fans, while allowing everyone to mix and mingle with other Red Raiders including our coaching staffs and administration."

This year's Red Raider Open will be held at The Rawls Course on Saturday, June 1 and registration is now open. To guarantee an entry, sponsorship registration is available beginning at $750. The sponsorship will include the ability to advertise you or your business' support of the Red Raider Scholarship Fund. The sponsorship sign will be autographed by head football coach Kliff Kingsbury after the completion of the tournament. The sponsorship will cover a team of four, including green fees, cart, range balls, on-course beverages (four tickets), lunch and a voucher for two football game tickets to the home opener vs. Stephen F. Austin on Sept. 7. The tournament will be organized as a four-person scramble with prizes for a hole-in-one, closest-to-the-pin and longest drive.

"Saturday, June 1 will be a fun day," said Heard. "Registering early will be importance for fans that have always participated and plan to do so again this year. For fans that can't attend but want to support this effort, gifts can be sent directly to the Red Raider Club marked "Red Raider Open."

The Red Raider Open is annually a "Who's-Who" of Texas Tech Athletics with head coaches, assistant coaches, athletics administration as well as former coaches and players.
