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.

  • Hall_Maddux.jpg Hall of Braves

    The weird part was that Jeff Idelson didn't take a lot of time to answer.
    "Is there any word or description that unifies this class?" was the query posed to the National Baseball Hall of Fame's president.
    "The common thread among the six is profound humility," Idelson said of former managers Joe Torre, Bobby Cox and Tony La Russa, and former players Frank Thomas, Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine, all of whom will be inducted into the Hall today. "I don't think I realized that fully until I spent time with them in December. It was uncanny to me, for the cumulative star power in that group, the humility among them. I think that's felt really strongly with baseball fans."

    Past successes lead to present and future expectations.
    That’s the task faced by pretty much all 12 area high school football coaches present Saturday at In The Game Magazine’s South Georgia Football media day at the Holiday Inn conference center.
    It’s a task that also has the elite group searching for answers as to how to get past the state championship road block in recent years, aside from Valwood’s GISA Class AA crown in 2012.
