Ringgold Telephone Company (RTC) and the American Junior Golf Association have united in a three-year partnership that will bring a national junior golf tournament to the city of Ringgold, Ga., the AJGA announced Friday.
“As an AJGA Tournament Sponsor, Ringgold Telephone Company has an opportunity to highlight our area and our tradition of community involvement while supporting junior golf,” said RTC Executive Vice President Phil Erli. “I think that the RTC and the AJGA will have a positive and productive partnership.”
The Ringgold Telephone Company Junior Classic, a 54-hole stroke play event, will take place June 9-12 at WindStone Golf Club in Ringgold.
“We’re excited that the Ringgold Telephone Company has made this event possible,” said Jason Etzen, AJGA executive vice president of development. “The community has really embraced this tournament and we’re looking forward to a great event.”
Ringgold is home to Luke List, a 2002 second-team Polo Golf Junior All-American who notched three top-15 finishes in AJGA tournaments last season. The Baylor School senior will be playing golf for Vanderbilt University this fall.
