Hicken will be on hand at the Jacksonville Golf and Country Club to not only play but also welcome the golfers and sponsors. In addition, Hicken will lend his name and support to all advertising, social media and public relations platforms related to the 2021 tournament.
The format for the tournament is best ball with a shotgun start. There will be four Par 3 hole-in-one contests, with prizes including a Pebble Beach golf vacation, Land Rover Defender from Fields Auto Group and a GMC Canyon from Nimnicht Buick GMC. There will also be prizes for Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin and Putting Contests, plus four lucky golfers will win a chance to shoot for $100,000.
