The first annual Kilted Classic is coming to Richmond on Thursday, Sept. 17.

The University Club at Arlington will play host to the new event, created and organized by local attorney, golfer, and Celtic enthusiast, Jud Patterson.

The fun begins Wednesday night, Sept. 16, at the Mule Barn at Arlington with a pre-party featuring singer-songwriter Ashley McBryde, drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and a Calcutta auction.

The shamble begins at 11am on Thursday. Mr. Patterson says kilts are strongly encouraged.

The entry fee is $125 per person or $500 per team. To register or for sponsorship information, contact Mr. Patterson at

All proceeds will be donated to Hospice Care Plus.
