Next month the UGA golf course will be the site of the Stadion Athens Classic, the PGA Nationwide Tour event previously held at the Jennings Mill Country Club. Watkinsville-based Stadion Money Management Inc. is the title sponsor. The tournament will be held April 29-May 2, with related events scheduled throughout that week. All net proceeds will go to UGA to support needs-based scholarships. It is the fifth year that Athens has been a stop on the Nationwide Tour, which has only one other event in Georgia, the South Georgia Classic in Valdosta.
