Smart to take part in Peach Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament

Georgia head coach Kirby Smart will represent the Bulldogs in the 17th annual Southern Company Peach Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament held April 28 – 30 at Reynolds Lake Oconee outside of Atlanta. A field of 23 current and former college football coaches will compete for a share of a $300,000 charity purse.

The nation’s premier collegiate coach golf event will be played in two-man scramble format in an 18-hole tournament. The Stableford scoring system will be used to help balance handicaps and encourage aggressive play.

Proceeds from the competition benefit charitable foundations selected by the coaches. Coach Smart’s winnings will go to the Kirby Smart Family Foundation, which focuses on being champions in the community by supporting and giving back to needy children and families facing adversity.

This represents coach Smart’s eighth appearance in the Southern Company Peach Bowl Challenge as he looks to add to the $325,000 in charitable winnings he’s already won in previous events.

Since its creation in 2007, the event has contributed a total of $9.3 million in scholarship and charity, helping make the Peach Bowl college football’s most charitable bowl organization.
