The Surry Community College Foundation will be holding its 26th Annual Woltz-Harold Golf Tournament on Thursday, Sept. 15, at Cross Creek Country Club, Mount Airy. Tee times are at 8 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.
Each year, approximately $225,000 to $260,000 in scholarships is awarded by the SCC Foundation to students including endowed and pass-through scholarships. Money is also set aside to help students through the Student Emergency Fund. The SCC Foundation has held a golf tournament for 26 years to raise money for student scholarships, netting more than $1.26 million.
The tournament honors past SCC Foundation Board of Directors, Pat Woltz and Bobby Harold, who personally endowed scholarships for students and volunteered annually for the golf tournament.
Tournament winners do not receive prizes. Instead, a scholarship will be awarded to a student in the name of team for the 2022-2023 school year. Additional contests include both morning and afternoon golfers including “Longest Drive,” and “Closest to the Pin.”
