The 2013 Johnathan Goddard Memorial Golf Scramble, honoring the former Marshall University football standout, will take place Aug. 30 at Twin Silos Golf Course in Lavalette, the university recently announced.

The scramble tees off at 1 p.m. Cost to enter is $75 per person or $300 for a team.

The tournament features closest-to-the-pin prizes, longest-drive prizes, a raffle, an auction and a chance to win a car, according to the release.
