The Mercer Bears golf team won its first Brickyard Collegiate Championship title earlier this month against another strong field in the tournament's seventh year.
But the Bears won't get a chance to repeat as the tournament champions.
The tournament has been discontinued after an announcement Wednesday.
"While we are sad that this has been our final tournament, we are proud of the success this tournament achieved and the wonderful memories from it,” Brickyard at Riverside owner Alfred Sams Jr. wrote in a letter to past Brickyard volunteers. “We want to thank all of our sponsors and volunteers for believing in, and providing such strong financial support and many volunteer hours to achieve this tournament success."
Never miss a local story.
The tournament started in 2007 as a partnership between Mercer's golf program and Sams' course, It also was a fundraiser for Macon-Middle Georgia Golf for Kids and raised more than $70,000 for that program.
Georgia won the tournament in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2012, while Georgia Tech took the title in 2011 and Augusta State won in 2009.
Former Stratford standout Russell Henley won the individual title in 2009 and 2010, while former FPD standout Taylor Floyd was part of Augusta State's team title.
