About Chi Chi Rodriguez
Former professional golfer Chi Chi Rodriguez won eight PGA titles between 1963 and 1979. He went on to compile another 22 wins on the Senior Tour and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1992. His outgoing nature and signature “toreador” dance earned him a reputation as a PGA Tour fan favorite. Always looking to give back to his community, he created the nonprofit Chi Chi Rodriguez Youth Foundation which helps young people achieve academic, social and economic success.
About the Lonnie Poole Golf Course
The Lonnie Poole Golf Course bears distinction as the only collegiate course ever designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer. Considered an outstanding public golf course in the Carolinas and a top collegiate golf course in the United States, it serves as a living laboratory for the university’s turf sciences, plant and soils sciences, and sustainable practices programs. The design leans heavily on traditional Scottish layouts while accommodating the natural landscape.
Inclement Weather Policy
If weather conditions force cancellation of the tournament, all paying registrants will receive a certificate for a round of golf at the Lonnie Poole Golf Course and all meals will be donated to a local shelter.
