Georgia golfers to participate in revolutionary competition

Atlanta — Golf enthusiasts in the greater Atlanta area and across Georgia are poised to compete in an entirely new breed of golf competition.

Golf 4 Millions launches its closest to the Pin Car Giveaway Event at The Georgia Trail at Sugarloaf in Duluth, Ga.

At the Golf 4 Millions Closest to the Pin Competition, no one needs to get the ball in the hole – or even within 100 feet of it. Regardless of how close the winning shot is, someone will walk away with the keys to a brand new Fiat 500.

Each day, the person whose shot lands closest to the pin will advance to the final shoot out, where the daily winners will each have one shot to win the car.

The event will launch on Sept. 7 and run until Oct. 12.

 Anyone wishing to participate may purchase as many shots as they wish for $1 per shot.

 The shots may be taken at the driving range on Friday afternoons and all day Saturday and Sunday, beginning Friday, Sept. 13, or any day of the week on par three holes as part of a round of golf at The Georgia Trail course.

Golf 4 Millions, along with the friendly staff of The Georgia Trail, would like to invite everyone with an affinity for golf, no matter their skill level, to come take a shot for a good cause and possibly go home with a brand new car.

The intention of Golf 4 Millions and Golf 4 Millions Events is to ‘Celebrate Golf Pros’ and to promote participation in golf.

Participants can earn a free shot on the course by test driving any vehicle at AutoNation Fiat, Mall of Georgia and also when they have a haircut at Sports Clip’s Peachtree Corners, Snellville Crossing and Sugarloaf locations.

For additional information, please visit or contact Laura Slipp by email at or by phone at 647.838.4545.

  • Lowndes_McPherson.jpg Milestones on tap for upcoming season

    Some milestones are destined to occur, like when Georgia Christian hosts David Emanuel on Aug. 22 in the Generals’ first varsity football game since the late 1960s.
    Others will have to wait and see what continues to take shape come Friday when teams can begin fall practice, and especially Aug. 1 when teams can suit up in pads for the first time, such as can Valdosta win its record 24th state title, or can Lowndes capture its fourth state championship under Randy McPherson, or can Valwood and coach Ashley Henderson play in its third straight GISA state championship game?
    As we start to find out the answers to those questions in just a few short weeks — the regular season is just 31 days away — there should be a few more milestones for area coaches to mark 2014 right along with the Generals getting back on the gridiron.

    With football summer workouts in full swing, occasionally the intensity and competitive drive can wane going against teammates. But on Friday, Valwood, Brookwood, Lanier County and Tiftarea Academy broke up the monotony by meeting at Goddard Field for a four-team, 7-on-7 passing league.

    If Ed Pilcher had his way, Berrien High would never throw the football.
    But that doesn't mean the veteran coach doesn't enjoy the opportunity that a passing league, or the six-team passing camp at Cairo on Thursday morning, can provide his Rebels.
