5th Annual Turn Left Golf Classic to Returns with a New Venue on Monday, October 22

Richmond Raceway, Richmond Flying Squirrels, and the Dominion Energy Charity Classic (Charity Classic) announce that the 5th Annual Turn Left Golf Classic presented by Cranemasters will be held on Monday, Oct. 22 at The Country Club of Virginia, James River Course. This year the event that benefits Richmond Raceway Cares and Flying Squirrels Charities has been aided by the Dominion Energy Charity Classic. Participants will play the tournament course in the same condition and with the same pin placements as the pros will on Sunday, Oct. 21 during the Charity Classic (Oct. 19-21). Foursomes for the Turn Left Golf Classic can be purchased here.

“It is great that three major sports entities in RVA can come together for the benefit of our community,” said Richmond Raceway President Dennis Bickmeier. “Since we started this tournament, so many of our partners and friends have this event circled on their calendar. We look forward to raising money for a great cause and delivering another quality event to our guests.”

The Turn Left Golf Classic is a shotgun start at 11 a.m. Prizes will be allotted to the top three foursomes. A post-event dinner on the back lawn is included with the registration price. The event was created in 2014 to benefit both Richmond Raceway Cares and Flying Squirrels Charities, two 501 (c) 3 non-profit organizations. 2018 will be the first year it is hosted in partnership with the Dominion Energy Charity Classic.

“We are excited to extend the Flying Squirrels and Richmond Raceway partnership to our great friends at the Dominion Energy Charity Classic,” said Flying Squirrels VP & COO Todd “Parney Parnell.  “We look forward to being with them over the weekend and then celebrating their success with our Turn Left Golf Classic on Monday.”

It just doesn’t get any better than Richmond Raceway. It’s the ultimate in short-track racing, and doesn’t get any more exciting than that. This is where my first victory came. Richmond is always going to be special for me.”
