The OFTC Foundation Hosts its 9th Annual Golf Tournament
The Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) Foundation hosted its ninth annual golf tournament Saturday, June 10 at Twin City Country Club in Tennille.
Participants played a four-man scramble of 18 holes, had lunch, were selected for door prizes and received a donated goody bag filled with items from local businesses and industries.
Eighteen teams consisting of 72 players participated in hopes of winning the coveted first place prize – a round of golf for four at one of four courses at Reynolds at Lake Oconee in Greensboro.
OFTC Foundation Vice Chair, Jeff Brown, kicked off the event with a welcome and instructions were given by Trustee Allen Haywood before tee off.
At the conclusion of the event, it was determined there was a three-way tie; each team scoring a 57 (15 under par) for the course. The winners were determined using the regression method.
First place winners and recipients of the Reynolds at Lake Oconee golf package were the Southern Company/Georgia Power of Dublin team consisting of Brad Harrison, Tyler Rhodes, Bryson Wilcher, and Matthew Waller.
“As always, we worry about the weather for this event but it was a beautiful day for a round of golf,” shared Kathy Aaron, Executive Director of The OFTC Foundation. “The OFTC Foundation is extremely fortunate to host events that have community support like this and it means so much to the students who the Foundation supports!”
“On behalf of the Foundation, we’d like to thank everyone who supported this event, especially the golfers and sponsors,” Aaron added. “Plans are already underway for next year’s event which we hope will be bigger and better!”
