Evansville, IN – The Evansville Men’s City Golf Tournament made a major announcement regarding title sponsorship during the annual Dan Scism Scholarship Award spring meeting.
The tournament committee is excited to welcome Romain Cadillac as the new title sponsor for the event. With event naming rights, the annual golf tournament, widely recognized simply as “The City,” will now be called the Romain Cadillac City Golf Tournament.
From its inception in 1930, The Evansville Courier and later the Evansville Courier & Press served as title sponsors of southwestern Indiana’s premier amateur event. The change will help ensure the tournament, scheduled the first two weekends of August, stays on firm footing well into the future.
“We had a great run with The Courier — we wouldn’t be here without all of the newspaper’s support from the very beginning — and now we’re excited to move forward with Romain Cadillac thanks to the support of Ron Romain and Amy Romain Barron,” said Bob Walther, tournament director. “Through the Dan Scism Scholarship Award (named for The Courier sports editor who founded the tournament), we’ll maintain those ties to our history.”
The qualification round for the 2023 event is scheduled for Saturday, July 22, at John H. Fendrich Golf Course. The opening round will be Saturday, Aug. 5, at Helfrich Hills, followed by the second round on Sunday, Aug. 6, at Fendrich. After the field is trimmed to the top 40 and ties, the tournament shifts the following weekend to Rolling Hills Country Club on Saturday, Aug. 12, then to Evansville Country Club for the final round on Sunday, Aug. 13.
Online player registration for the event opens June 5. Visit the new tournament website at romaincitygolf.com for tournament registration, schedule, pairings, scoring, history, and more. The Scism Scholarship is also now accepting applications at romaincitygolf.ccom/scism.
