Point University held Sixth Annual Golf Classic

On October 5, 2018, Point University held its Sixth Annual Golf Classic, raising $26,500 worth of sponsorships to fund scholarships for students from Troup and Chambers counties.

“We are very thankful to our donors for supporting this cause,” said Shannon Lipham, Point University golf course manager and assistant men’s golf coach. “This event was a great success, and we will strive to keep the momentum of hosting events at an excellent standard as we move forward.”

The roster for the Golf Classic consisted of 92 players, and the event was presented by J93.3, who also attended the event with a booth.

In all, there were 39 sponsors. Some of the financial contributors included DeMoss, Eagle Christian Tours, Adidas, Kimble’s Food by Design, Loy’s Office Supplies, National Management Resources Corporation, SAGE Dining Services, Mike Patton Auto Family and Nandina.

Those donating in-kind sponsorships included Subway, Main Street Urgent Care, Coca-Cola, John Deere, Waffle House, Chick-fil-A, Biblical History Center, Hampton Inn, Paula J. Waldron – State Farm Agent, Dunkin Donuts and the Greater Valley Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Golf Classic is the first Point University event to be held at the golf club since undergoing lawn restorations made over the previous six months.

“It was a great opportunity to show off the improvements we have made to the course. A lot of time, money and energy have been dedicated to improving the greens,” said Lipham.
