Posted 9/18/2012 12:38:00 PM
For local golfers and visitors to South Carolina’s Midlands
, The Windermere Club
– designed by famed architect Pete Dye, who also built Hilton Head’s Harbour Town Golf Links
and Kiawah Island’s Ocean Course
, the state’s top-rated duo – is among the area’s must-play courses.
On Oct. 2, Oliver Gospel Mission
– at 123 years old, the oldest homeless/rescue mission in the Southeast – is offering players a chance to enjoy a round at the private club (the past three years, the tournament was held at Columbia Country Club
). The mission’s fourth annual “Hope for the Homeless” Golf Tournament offers an opportunity to help some of society’s less fortunate while experiencing a terrific golf challenge.
The four-person, captain’s choice tournament begins with a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start. Proceeds from the event will benefit Columbia's
Oliver Gospel Mission programs and expansion, notably a planned new shelter for homeless women with dependent children.
Cost of the tournament is $150 per entrant or $600 for a four-person team, and the field will be limited to 28 teams. Sponsorships at $150 per hole are available as well. To register, contact Beth Well at (803) 254-6470, Ext. 6, or email email@example.com
