Millsaps plans golf tournament


Millsaps College will hold the 10th Annual Mary Ann Edge Memorial Golf Tournament May 7 at Annandale Golf Club in Madison. 

The tournament is honor of the late Millsaps golf coach and assistant professor, Mary Ann Edge, and will benefit the Millsaps athletics program. 

Edge, a native of Amory, was a pioneer in golfing circles in Mississippi and throughout the region. Some of her accomplishments include being named the City of Jackson women’s champion 13 times, state senior women’s champion once, State Amateur runner-up five times, low amateur in LPGA events twice and Shady Oaks Club champion 20 times. 

In the meantime, she coached the Millsaps Majors men’s golf team for 28 years, and in 1993, the year she retired, she coached the Majors to the Southeastern Collegiate Athletic Conference championship. 

Cost of the tournament is $200 per person or $800 per team, and includes lunch. Millsaps faculty and staff receive a 25 percent discount to drop the price to $150 per person or $600 per team. Half of the entry fee is considered tax deductible. Tee time is scheduled for 9 a.m.
