NICHOLS — The Andy Rickert Memorial Golf Tournament will return on Saturday, Aug. 10 and Sunday, Aug. 11 at the Tioga Golf Club.

The annual event raises money for: scholarships in Andy’s name that go to Athens seniors who play golf and baseball; supporting a family in need at Christmas; special projects for the baseball and golf teams at Athens High; and needs of any individual playing baseball or golf for Athens.

The tournament is limited to 64 two-person teams. The cost for each team is $300 and includes greens fees, cart, skins fee and dinner for Saturday and Sunday. Non-golfers are welcome to attend the dinner for $25.

Each team will be allocated to one of three divisions — male/male, female/female or mixed. Flights will be determined based on the distribution of teams in the event. Cash prizes will be paid for each flight.

Saturday, Aug. 10 will be a 1 p.m. shotgun start. The Sunday session will start in the morning.

The dinner on Aug. 10 will be held at the Tioga Golf Club. It will begin at 6 p.m.

The tournament is still looking for individuals or businesses to sponsor a hole for $100.

Interested golfers can pick up registration forms at local golf courses. For more information, contact Renee Rickert at or message her on the Facebook page at
