Tau Open to Celebrate 30-Year Anniversary in 2015


Next spring will mark 30 years since Kappa Sigma's first Tau Open was held in 1985. The tournament is scheduled to return to Lakeway's Yaupon and Live Oak golf courses next year on April 17 and 18.

We hope to make this a very special event by recognizing those who helped start this wonderful tradition that has been enjoyed by hundreds of Kappa Sigs over the years. We will also add a new twist to next year's Tau Open with an invitation to Kappa Sig wives or girlfriends to participate as members of foursomes.

Please mark your calendar for what promises to be a fun and memorable Kappa Sig weekend.
