Over the past 25 years the annual Hole In One competition has raised more than a million dollars for endowed scholarship programs at UT Tyler. Students have benefited directly from the competition that could be giving away $1 million itself on Sunday, May 20, at Hollytree Country Club! Qualifying began Saturday at the UT Tyler Herrington Patriot Center and continues through 11 p.m. Friday.

Daily qualifying is open from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., except for the special Friday Night Lights qualifying that keeps the lights on driving range until 11 p.m. Friday. Daily qualifiers will face off to win $1 million Saturday and the finals will be held Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. at Hollytree Country Club in Tyler. In addition, daily qualifiers could end up winning $25,000 or a 2012 Cadillac SRX.

The contest is open to amateur golfers 18 and older, giving them a shot in the competition for $1 per shot.

Today (May 14) is Ladies Day. Ladies will receive an additional 10 shots for every 25 purchased. Tuesday is First Responders Day (police, fire, EMS, military) and Wednesday is Seniors Day (65 and over) and they also get an additional 10 shots with every 25 purchased.

Proceeds will go toward scholarship programs that support students across all UT Tyler campuses (Tyler, Longview and Palestine). For more information, check out the UT Tyler Hole In One Facebook page.

The UT Tyler Patriot Million Dollar Hole In One is at the UT Tyler Herrington Patriot Center at 3900 University Boulevard in Tyler.
