Before golf clubs were used to propel golf balls across fairways, they were nothing more than oversized courtroom gavels that doubled as hilariously destructive fly swatters.

At the Cox Classic, Nationwide Tour golfers vie for a position on the PGA Tour and a share of the $650,000 prize purse awarded to those who conquer the rolling terrain of Champions Run Country Club. From their vantage point, spectators can enjoy a panoramic view of players as they traverse the bentgrass fairways of the 18-hole course, which spans 7,188 yards of impeccably maintained greens and molds for creating sand-trap castles. The course strives to rattle golfers with berms, grassy knolls, a winding creek, and two ponds, all mementos to showcase the ingenuity of course designer Jeffrey Brauer.
The one-day clubhouse ticket grants fans admission to the Champions Run clubhouse, access to the Champions Run golf shop, and an opportunity to witness skillfully executed golf-cart wheelies. After the day's final golfer putts out, musical acts entertain guests into the evening, such as Saturday's headliner Kelley James.
