The Richmond Flying Squirrels and Richmond Raceway on Monday announced the return of the 8th Annual Turn Left Golf Classic presented by Cranemasters on Monday, Oct. 24 at Independence Golf Club.

The Turn Left Golf Classic was created in 2014 to benefit Flying Squirrels Charities and Richmond Raceway Cares, two 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. The tournament returns to Independence Golf Club for the first time since 2018.

“We look forward to another memory-making Turn Left Golf Classic presented by Cranemasters in conjunction with our friends at Richmond Raceway,” Flying Squirrels CEO Todd “Parney” Parnell said. “This event has raised valuable funds throughout the years to benefit the excellent community work of Flying Squirrels Charities and Richmond Raceway Cares. We look forward to another festive event that will benefit our community for years to come.”

The Turn Left Golf Classic is a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Prizes will be allotted to the top foursome and a post-event lunch is included with the registration price. Sponsorship opportunities and foursome spots are available here. A ticket to the Richmond Flying Squirrels game on Sunday, Oct. 23 will be included with each registration.

“When Richmond Raceway and the Richmond Flying Squirrels get together, you know it is going to be a memorable event in the community,” Richmond Raceway President Lori Collier Waran said. “The Turn Left Golf Classic will once again be an exciting event that brings RVA together to benefit our community.”

“We’re very excited and honored to be partnering with Richmond Raceway and the Richmond Flying Squirrels,” said Giff Breed, President, Pros, Incorporated. “I’m sure we’ll have the greens running as fast as a straightaway on the backstretch at Richmond Raceway.”
