CELEBRATING GOLF. OUR WAY.
The NAACP Calvin Peete Golf Celebration is a special HBCU Collegiate Golf Tournament and Experience celebrating and honoring the legacy of professional golfing legend, Calvin Peete. The tournament will feature NCAA Division I and Division 2 HBCU Men's and Women's golf teams and individuals to compete alongside a foursome team.
The 2023 celebratory tournament will be held at the Golf Club of Georgia, located just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Golf Club of Georgia comprises two championship golf courses: Creekside and Lakeside courses. The Creekside Course will host the Women's Division Championship and the Lakeside Course will host the Men's Division Championship.
TWO COURSES. FOUR CHAMPIONSHIPS.
THE FORMAT: Each participating HBCU collegiate golfer will be the "Captain" of their assigned foursome teams to complete a fivesome. The HBCU Captain will play in an 18-hole individual stroke play while their foursome teams will play in a scramble format with the ability to utilize the HBCU Captain's ball, maintaining two scores. The tournament will celebrate both Team and Individual Men's and Women's Champions upon completion of the round.
