27 holes in one day: Transy Golf Classic, Women’s 9-Hole Golf Classic return to Keene Trace to benefit Pioneer student-athletes

It’s a double the opportunity, double the fun day at Keene Trace Golf Club on Aug. 8 as golfers (and golf wannabes) take to the course to support Transylvania Athletics. 

Registration is open for both the 2023 Transy Golf Classic presented by Bluegrass Orthopaedics and the Women’s 9-Hole Golf Classic presented by Women’s Worth Alliance. The dual events raise vital funds for Transylvania’s student-athletes. 

Keene Trace is also the home course for the Pioneers women’s and men’s golf teams. Transylvania hosted the 2023 men’s and will host the 2024 women’s NCAA Division III golf championships at the course. 

Two- and four-person teams can register to play in the Golf Classic, an 18-hole scramble. The Women’s Classic is a four-woman, nine-hole scramble (register here). Registration fees include a hospitality gift, greens and cart fees, meals and prizes for top teams and other hole challenges. Sponsorship opportunities are still available as well. 

New at this year’s classic, Callaway licensed club fitters will be on site to provide free fittings to all participants. 

More than 450 student-athletes at Transylvania will benefit from the funds raised by the golf classics. The university has 26 intercollegiate athletic teams who participate in a wide range of sports.
