Stadion Classic at UGA returning in 2013

The Tour professional golf tournament will be returning to the UGA Golf Course in 2013, and Stadion Money Management has extended its title sponsor agreement.

The Stadion Classic at UGA will take place April 29-May 5.

This will mark the fourth straight year that UGA has hosted the Stadion Classic. The tournament was known as the Athens Regional Foundation Classic from 2006-2009. Watkinsville-based Stadion Money Management has been the title sponsor since the event moved to the UGA Golf Course in 2010.

The Stadion Classic at UGA continues to be the only PGA Tour sanctioned event that is owned and operated by an institution of higher education.

The tournament will be operated by UGA’s Auxiliary Services Division. Net proceeds from the event will benefit the university’s need-based scholarship program. Additionally, the Stadion Classic at UGA supports Tickets Fore Charity, which benefits nonprofit organizations in communities where PGA Tour and Champions Tour tournaments are held.
