Gross score champions and low senior score will be awarded in each of the men's flights and the ladies' division will recognize one low gross score champion and award prizes based on low net scores.

Prior to the two-day City Championship, Coral Oaks will host the Roger Dean Chevrolet Pro-Am Friday, Oct. 20, with a 1 p.m. shotgun start followed by a Kick-off Party and BBQ from 5:30-9 p.m. The party will include food, live music, plus a chance to mingle with past city champions, course members and friends. Admission to the party is included with the City Championship and Pro-Am registration fees or non-golfers can attend the party for only $25 (includes two drink tickets).

"The event creates strong competition amongst golfers of every skill level and we are particularly excited this year for the players to experience Coral Oaks' brand new greens and other recent improvements. A big thank you goes out to RE/MAX Realty Team, Roger Dean Chevrolet and our other sponsors whose support help to make the tournament possible."
