MELBOURNE, FLA. — Florida Tech will host the Second Annual Capstone Classic Golf Tournament on Friday, June 13, beginning with a 1 p.m. shotgun start at the
Turtle Creek Golf Club in Rockledge. The tournament is a College of Engineering fundraiser to support scholarships and student design projects.
Registration and lunch begin at 11:30 a.m. An awards dinner takes place at 5 p.m. and a wet wedge-y contest, which is $10, is ongoing throughout the day.
In this event, players try to hit a wedge shot 80 yards into a plastic pool in a water hazard.
The entry fee is $110 each or $400 for a foursome. The fee includes the green fee, cart fee, player gift packages, lunch, dinner and awards. The awards
will include plaques, prizes and trophies.
Several sponsorship opportunities are available, ranging from a $200 hole sponsorship to an $8,000 presenting sponsor donation, with five other sponsorship
levels in between. Sponsorships offer publicity and other opportunities to the donor. All sponsors will be assigned a table at different holes where they
can promote their company and products while giving away free prizes, drinks and cigars to all golfers.
Each year, Florida Tech engineering students join in teams to design and construct a student design project to fulfill a bachelor’s degree graduate
requirement. The 2008 projects include a hydrogen plane, unmanned automated plane, rocket engine test stand and racing electric car.
