Record Participation in Annual Taylor Bank/Ocean Pines Golf Tournament Raises Funds for Junior Golf
Record participation at the 33rd Annual Taylor Bank/Ocean Pines Junior Golf Scholarship Tournament, held on Aug. 16 at Ocean Pines Golf Club, will mean more money for junior golf programs and scholarships.
The event, hosted by the Ocean Pines Golf Members’ Council, raises funds for scholarships and for junior golf programs at the course.
“With the help and support of all who contributed and played, the success of the tournament exceeded our expectations,” said Ocean Pines golf member and tournament chair Scotty Wheatley.
More players in this year’s tournament, as well as increased participation from sponsors, will allow the Ocean Pines Golf Members’ Council to distribute more money to junior golf.
“The money raised will enable us to continue and give more back in scholarships to those high school students who are golfers or interested in golf course maintenance programs, and to continue our support of our junior golf program at Ocean Pines,” Wheatley said.
This past year the Ocean Pines Golf Members’ Council awarded $4,000 in scholarships to area high school seniors. The group also donated sets of junior golf clubs as well as money to purchase additional junior golf equipment for use with junior golf camps and clinics in Ocean Pines.
