Fans looking for some fun in the sun while visiting El Paso for the 83 Annual Hyundai Sun Bowl are invited to play with other college football fans and El Paso natives in the 2016 Hyundai Sun Bowl Fan Golf Challenge on Wednesday, Dec. 28 at Vista Hills Country Club.
Vista Hills Country Club has once again been chosen to host the Hyundai Sun Bowl Fan Golf Challenge. Representatives (Fans) from the selected ACC University (TBD) and PAC-12 University will be pitted against each other in an 18 Hole Two-Person-Scramble Match Play Format.
“It’s always great to see the fans and the locals having a great time out on the course,” said Executive Director of the Hyundai Sun Bowl Bernie Olivas. “The volunteers and organizers of this event do a great job and the turnout last year was tremendous.”
The winning university will be determined by the number of matches a university wins. Two-person teams will be formed from each university, and they will go head-to-head against a two-person team from the other university.
You can sign-up as a two-person team or you can sign-up as an individual, and we will place you on a team. You also have the option of playing with an El Pasoan who knows the golf course.
Golfers and Fans attending the WestStar Bank Don Haskins Sun Bowl Invitational Basketball Tournament are also welcome to play.
Teams must be entered and paid in full not later than noon on Monday, Dec.26, 2016.
