Hyundai Sun Bowl Fan Golf Challenge
11 a.m.
Vista Hills Country Club
2210 Trawood Dr., El Paso, TX 79935

Open to anyone who wants to play a fun round of golf! Representatives (fans) from the participating ACC University and Pac-12 University will be pitted against each other in an 18–Hole Two-Person-Scramble Match Play Format Tournament. The winning university will be determined by the number of matches a university wins. Two-person teams will be formed from fans 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. Teams must be entered and paid in full no later than noon on Monday, December 26.
