    Representatives from Dixon Golf will host two holes during our tournament - this is at no cost to the Alumni Chapter - two other holes are sponsored by the alumni chapter for prizes. Below is a description from Dixon Golf as to what they will be hosting:
    The Dixon Challenge will be a part of our golf tournament this year.  The par 3 Dixon Challenge gives us an opportunity to enhance and gives golfers a chance to play a fun game for great prizes.  Dixon Golf, makers of the world's first high performance, eco-friendly golf ball, is pioneering a nationwide effort to reduce the 300 million golf balls deposited in landfills every year. In order to market this cause and the Dixon product, they sponsor charity golf events throughout the year. The Dixon Challenge takes place at thousands of tournaments across the country, raising more than a million dollars for tournament beneficiaries this year. Here is how it works:  For a cost of $10 per player, each participant will get an automatic mulligan at the tee box and they will shoot their ball and a Dixon eco-friendly Earth ball given to them when they arrive at the hole.  If either goes in the cup for a hole-in-one, the player wins two airplane tickets.  If either ball lands on the green then they win a $12 sleeve of Dixon Earth balls, and as long as all four team members play, the team gets an automatic birdie.  Just for their contribution, all participants get a free one year subscription to Golf Digest.  And best of all, we (Alumni Chapter) get all the net proceeds from the hole!

    We will also have a skill contest on a par 5 hole — the Aurelius Driver Challenge.  On this hole a player contributes $20 with the net proceeds going to us (Alumni Chapter).  The player gets a mulligan at the tee box, four chances to win a $350 driver via two tee box shots on the course to put a ball in a hula-hoop and then two raffle tickets, a chance for an eagle if the whole team plays by taking their second shot on the par 5 from a 100 yard drop from the green, and a chance to win two airplane tickets by making a double-eagle.  Just for their contribution, all participants will get a gift certificate to receive a free hybrid golf club valued at $150.
    I hope this will add a little bit more fun and excitement to the golf tournament; now get your team ready, sign up and get your entry fee paid and bring your best game. I look forward to a great Alumni Day.

    President, Beta Xi Alumni Chapter
