Golf tournament to raise funds to build Memorial Wall

  • Friday, June 13, 2014

Assembly 3272 of the Knights of Columbus will host two simultaneous 9 Hole Captain’s Choice Golf Tournaments on Thursday, July 10.

Net proceeds from the event will be donated to the Georgetown County Veterans Memorial Wall, a 501(c)3 organization, to help fund the construction of a memorial honoring the special men and women of the Georgetown County community who gave their lives in our nation’s military conflicts starting with the Revolutionary War.

This granite memorial wall will sit between the VFW Post 6444 building and the new American Legion Post 114 building on Church Street in Georgetown.

The wall will be approximately 3.5 feet high, 18 inches wide and about 80 feet long, and be topped with the following flags: American, South Carolina, MIA/POW, American Legion, VFW, Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard.

The tournament, which will be held at Heritage Plantation Golf Course in Pawleys Island, will start with registration at noon, followed by lunch at 1 p.m. and a shotgun start at 2:30 p.m.

An awards ceremony will follow the tournament.

“Support from merchants in the Georgetown Community has been very gratifying — every player is assured a door prize,” said Ron Gilbert a member of the Georgetown County Veterans Memorial Wall 501 c(3) and of Assembly 3272 of the Knights of Columbus.

“Anyone looking to participate in the tournament should register quickly as we have limited the number of players to assure an enjoyable tournament.”
