Improved Golf Classic Scheduled for Sept. 15

The PCC Foundation Fall Golf Classic returns to Greenville Country Club in September. Plenty of event sponsorship and playing opportunities remain, with proceeds going toward student scholarships and a host of educational activities at PCC.WINTERVILLE—While the location and many of the day’s activities remain unchanged, organizers of the 18th Annual Pitt Community College Foundation Fall Golf Classic say they have made significant improvements to the scholarship fundraiser.

This year’s tournament – set for Sept. 15 – will once again take place at Greenville Country Club, with shotgun starts scheduled for 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Both rounds at the par-71, 6,568-yard course will feature three flights, with gift certificates being awarded to the top two foursomes from each morning and afternoon flight.

One notable change to the 2016 event pertains to how it will be scored. Teams will still play under the “superball” format, but handicaps will no longer be factored into final results.

Also new will be a pair of golf ball drop contests – one in the morning and another in the afternoon – to give golfers and non-golfers a chance to win cash. Each numbered golf ball entered into the contests will cost $10. Half of the money raised through the sales, which begin Aug. 1, will be awarded to the individual whose golf ball lands in or closest to the hole. The PCC Foundation will receive the other half of the pot.

"We decided to freshen up the Fall Golf Classic, so that it remains popular within the community,” said PCC Events Specialist Erin Greenleaf. “It is always a great day on the course because we emphasize ‘friend’-raising rather than simply fundraising.

“Yes, our main goal is always to raise more money for the students at PCC, but raising awareness and having fun while doing it is also very important,” she continued. “I really hope the golfers and our volunteers love the changes.”

The cost to participate in the Fall Golf Classic is $500 per four-person team. The entry fee includes a welcome gift, range balls, breakfast (morning golfers) or dinner (afternoon golfers), lunch, cart, green fees, two mulligans, and entry into closest-to-the-pin and hole-in-one contests.

For teams sponsoring the tournament, the cost is $1,100. In addition to the benefits previously noted, sponsors will receive recognition on an event sponsor board displayed throughout the tournament and at a tee box on the course. Sponsors will also be listed in materials used to promote the event.

For additional information on sponsorship opportunities, including $100-hole sponsorships, or tournament registration, contact Greenleaf at (252) 493-7496 or egreenleaf@email.pittcc.edu.

Proceeds from the golf tournament go to the PCC Foundation to fund student scholarships and educational activities at PCC.
