Mulligans and other score-reduction enhancement opportunities are available for purchase. Players must register to compete, and playing prizes are included for many holes. The top three teams in the first two flights also will earn prizes. Four-person teams or individual players may register online at www.comm.msstate.edu.
Tournament registration is $100 per player. Registration packages include greens fees, a golf car, lunch, range balls and one free entry in the putting contest. Players also will receive an Adidas MSU golf polo.
On the day of the event, registration, lunch and the putting contest will take place from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m.
Proceeds from the tournament support the departmentâs scholarship funds, specifically the Lora J. DeFore Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship aids students who earn distant internships, with 15 students in the first three years benefitting from this program.
The communication department includes five concentrations: broadcasting, communication studies, journalism, public relations and theatre. One of the largest academic units in MSUâs College of Arts and Sciences, the department currently includes approximately 600 majors.

The play is based on Bram Stokerâs novel that debuted in 1897 with little fanfare. Over the decades, however, the Irish authorâs gothic classic has been retold in numerous movie and television productions, as well as in numerous contemporary spin-offs.
In Charles Moreyâs acclaimed adaptation, Count Dracula has slipped quietly into Victorian London. Time passes and the city becomes helpless against his frightful power.
Only one man seems capable of stopping the bloody carnage. The clever and resourceful Dr. Abraham Van Helsing sets about locating the vampire lair so he may pierce the Prince of Darknessâ heart with a wooden stake.
