Pairings Announced for 2024 Southern Company Peach Bowl Challenge

 The Southern Company Peach Bowl Challenge today announced the official pairings for its 17th annual charity golf tournament. A 12-team field of current and former college football coaches will compete for a share of the $300,000 charity purse April 30 at Reynolds Lake Oconee outside Atlanta.

Pairings were determined by balancing handicaps between teams. The nation’s premier collegiate coach golf event will be played in Two Man Scramble format with Stableford scoring in an 18-hole tournament.

Proceeds from the event benefit charitable foundations selected by the coaches. The first-place duo will split $65,000 between the two winning coaches’ charities, while the remainder of the purse will be divided based on the finish of the other teams.

Since its creation in 2007, the event has contributed a total of $9.3 million in scholarship and charity, helping make the Peach Bowl college football’s most charitable bowl organization.
