JCJC's Dykes to compete in NJCAA Division II National Tournament May 21-24

Posted: Updated:

ELLISVILLE – Jones County Junior College will be represented in the NJCAA Division II Golf Tournament May 21-24 in Scottsboro, Ala.

Branning Dykes, a sophomore from Richton, qualified for the tournament as an individual after a second-place finish in the Region 23 Tournament last month at Dancing Rabbit Golf Club in Philadelphia.

Dykes led the tournament after round one when he shot a two-under par 70. He shot a 79 on day two, giving him a two-day total of 149, 7-over par. That was good enough for a second-place finish behind Co-Lin's Corbin May, who shot a 73-67 – 140.

The national tournament will be held at Goose Pond Colony Resort. Practice rounds will be held May 19-20.

"We are thrilled to host the NJCAA Championship at Goose Pond Colony and encourage everyone to come out to watch these talented collegiate golfers and teams compete for the top spots," says General Manager Lyle Sosebee. "We always enjoy hosting events that contribute to the development of student-athletes' skills and those that bring the community together to support their efforts."

 The tournament is open to the public. Spectators can purchase an individual day pass for $10 or a four-round tournament pass for $25. Golf carts will also be available to spectators for a $20 rental fee.

The Colony Course is a George Cobb design that opened in 1971 and is enjoyed by pros and amateurs alike. With its natural layout and views of the Tennessee River from every hole, the course has received numerous accolades over the past few years including "Most Fun Course to Play in North Alabama" by the Dixie Section of the PGA and a feature in Golf Digest's "Places to Play" with a 4-star rating.
