The LBW Community College Foundation is gearing up for the eighth annual LBWCC/Camellia City Classic Golf Tournament on Sept. 11 at Cambrian Ridge Golf Course.

“We are in the process of lining up sponsors for the event, with all the proceeds to be used for scholarships and other student activities at LBW in Greenville,” said Dr. Jean Thompson, Foundation board member.

Last year’s event, which was won by the team of Joby Norman, Todd Norman, Al Brannon and Mark Landers, raised more than $20,000 for the LBW Community College Foundation.

In addition to helping raise scholarship funds, golfers also compete for prizes for the top three teams, closest to the pin, longest drive, and hole-in-one.

“We are so grateful to Greenville Motor Company for providing the automobile each year as the hole-in-one prize. So far, we have not had a winner, but this year could be different,” said Thompson.

Cost is $150 for an individual entry, and $600 for a team of four. Deadline for entries is fast approaching, she said. The deadline is Sept. 6.

For the Sept. 11 event, the driving range will open at 11 a.m. Tournament activity begins at 1 p.m. with a four-person scramble.
