Top coaches and celebrities vie for $630,000 in scholarship and charity.

Greensboro, Ga. (April 24, 2017) – A 15-team field of NCAA head coaches and celebrity alumni is set to compete in the 11th annual Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament, all vying for their share of $630,000 in scholarship and charity. The field consists of current and former national coaches, including both of this year’s football and basketball national title winners in Dabo Swinney and Roy Williams.

The nation’s premier head coach and celebrity golf event will be held April 30 to May 3 at the Reynolds Lake Oconee outside of Atlanta. Proceeds from the event benefit endowed scholarships at the participating universities and charitable foundations selected by the coaches. Since its creation in 2007, the event has contributed a total of $6 million in scholarship and charity, helping make the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl college football’s most charitable bowl game.

The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge main event features pairings that include a university head coach and a former athlete from the same school competing in a scramble format against other university teams from around the country. The event will be broadcast on ESPN in August and December. Specific dates will be announced this summer.

The field of competitors is scheduled to include two former winning teams including last year’s winning duo of Hugh Freeze and Wesley Walls of Ole Miss, as well as the four-time winning pair of Paul Johnson and Jon Barry of Georgia Tech (2011, 2012, 2014, 2015). The field includes two Heisman Trophy winners, six Dodd Trophy winners, and five new teams including Baylor, Florida, Pittsburgh and TCU. Representing the first-ever College Football Playoff (CFP) team will be former coaches and current CFP Selection Committee members Frank Beamer and Bobby Johnson.
