7th Annual RCG Freedom Classic

Mark your calendars! July 3rd 2017 will determine the winner of this year's RCG Freedom Classic! This year's 7th installment will mark yet another year that we at Above Par Golf Tournaments will add a new feature to our already prize packed signature event! In addition to over half the field winning prizes just for finishing, our normal giveaways (see pictures from last year including the flat screen tv) and the fact we are welcoming back the Oyster Putting Challenge, sponsored this year by Phoenix Property Developers; we are also introducing the Crab Basket Chip Off brought to you by Vickie Lee Charters. Players will compete for chances to add their name in the 5 gallon bucket by chipping golf balls into crab baskets at different distances, during the award ceremony we will draw one lucky winner to receive a 4 person charter with Captain Tyler Spaulding on the Vickie Lee in the Fall 2017. Check out some of last year's haul by visiting them on Instagram at vicki_lee_fishing_charters. Lunch will be served between the 9th and 10th hole on the hill by the picnic tables. If you pass there early you can swing by after hole 18 as well (but save room for oysters as they will again be on the practice green). Nick's will be providing some of their finest meats in the form of hamburgers, hot dogs, and sausages. Keep checking back here for updates to the color of this year's champion polo and tune in to the Above Par Radio Podcast soon to be posted on the site. Keep checking the event's player page to check out the competition as they enter! Hit em straight!
