DCCC Mascot at 2014 Golf Tournament

April 6, 2015 – Time to brush up on your backswing. Davidson County Community College invites local golfers to join the college for its 24th Annual DCCC Foundation Golf Tournament. The May 7 tournament will be held at Colonial Country Club in Thomasville and will benefit the student scholarships and programs funded by the foundation.

The tournament includes two rounds – a Captain’s Choice round at 8:30 a.m. and Modified, Best Two Balls at 1:30 p.m. Team entries and sponsorships are currently being accepted. Registration is available through May 4 by calling 336-224-4680 or online at www.davidsonccc.edu/foundation.

“We are grateful to the hundreds of golfers who come out year after year in support of our students,” says Larry Link, longtime chair of the DCCC Foundation Golf Committee. “What better way to spend a day than playing golf while supporting the future of our community?”

Golfers will have the chance to win prizes and participate in additional contests, such as Hole-In-One, Closest to the Pin, Longest Putt and Chipping. DCCC Therapeutic Massage students will also offer free chair back massages to golfers.

Organizers of the event note that registration and sponsorships for the tournament support hundreds of DCCC students who might not otherwise be able to pursue higher education. The tournament’s proceeds also help maximize opportunities for all students through the many programs and new initiatives that make DCCC an exceptional resource for the community.

The day of golf supporting DCCC will be held at the renovated, 18-hole Colonial Country Club golf course, designed by Michael Gleason Golf Course Design of Pinehurst. The course includes new “Champion” ultradwarf bermuda grass putting surfaces and a total bunker renovation, which included changing the location, shape and size of all bunkers. A new short game practice area and the creation of three new holes also allowed for the doubling of the practice range.
