The Paul D. Camp Community College Foundation invites you to bring your best swing to the green on Sept. 24 at Cypress Cove Country Club in Franklin.

The 15th annual Golf Tournament gets under way with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Those who did not register ahead of time can do so between noon and 1 p.m. on the day of the event.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the athletic program at the college — the PDC Hurricanes baseball team and the newly formed Lady Hurricanes softball team.

“Creation of the athletics program has been part of our efforts to improve student engagement,” said Vice President for Institutional Advancement and Workforce Development and Executive Director of the PDCCC Foundation Dr. Renee Felts. “Students are more likely to remain steadfast in their studies and graduate on time if they have an atmosphere that is more conducive to learning.”

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and there are varying levels of support opportunities available, including sponsorships. Tournament fees cover 18 holes of golf, golf cart, one mulligan for each player, beverages, lunch and dinner. Superlative awards will be presented for the longest drive and the closest to the pin in men’s and women’s categories. Prizes will also be awarded for first, second and third places in flights one and two. A hole-in-one will win a trip for two to the 2019 Daytona 500.

Cypress Cove Country Club is located at 30333 Country Club Road, Franklin. In the event of rain, the alternate date of the tournament has been set for Oct. 1.
