Our 25th Annual SOS/ODSC Charity Golf Tournament was again held at the Valley at Eastport Golf Club in Little River, SC. Seventy-three golfers took part on a beautiful day for golf. Everyone enjoyed meeting and greeting old and new friends. The golfers were from all over the US and a lot of local players also.

Golfers started arriving about 7:30 am. They were greeted by the ladies and bags were checked in. Liquid sunshine, biscuits and donuts were available for everyone. After a brief welcome by Geoffrey Girling and Bill Jones, the GM of the golf course, Sonny Tomberlin explained the changes in the rules, the putting contest, the marshmallow long drive contest and shortcut to eagle. The shortcut to eagle gave the golfers an opportunity to play from the 150 yard marker.

All winning teams scored under par.

This year’s golf tournament was led by Geoffrey Girling and Sonny Tomberlin. The Raffle Prizes and the hole sponsors was led by Karen and Rich Young. Board Liaison was Brian Schmitt. Administrative assistance was provided by Joyce Girling, Monica Powell and Karen Young.

Many ODSC members participated in obtaining hole sponsors and prize donations. Many members also participated on Tournament Day doing various jobs from picking up food, registering golfers, checking bags, selling mulligans and raffle tickets, cooking hamburgers and hot dogs to being cart girls. All volunteers added to the success of the tournament. Our Club is fortunate to have each of these caring and participating volunteers. As always, special thanks to each of them for their dedication and participation.

ANOTHER GREAT GOLF TOURNAMENT.
