DDRA gears up for annual golf tournament April 14
The Darlington Downtown Revitalization Association is looking for teams to play in its Annual Golf Tournament on Wednesday, April 14, at Darlington Country Club.
Enjoy a buffet lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. followed by a 1 p.m. shotgun start for this four-person, captain’s choice tournament at the newly renovated club. Presenting sponsors Carolina Bank and Darlington Raceway make the event possible each year. Other grand sponsors include Nationwide Insurance and Fitness World Gyms and, new this year, MPD Electric Cooperative.
“The business community feels this is a great way to connect and build relationships while having a good time,” says Ronnie Ward, co-chair of the tournament.
A community favorite, the tournament has been a fixture for the DDRA for years. Cost to play is $280 per four-person team. Entry fee includes green fee, cart fee, lunch, beverages along the course, prizes, and two mulligans per player. Hole sponsorships are available as well.
Also this year, the DDRA will bring back a special prize to the top team: Tickets to the Southern 500 race in September.
“This is in addition to our other prizes, but it is one we felt we needed to bring back as the track has been so good to the DDRA and this community and working so hard to make Darlington a better place to work and live,” says Billy Hill, co-chair of the tournament.
The tournament serves as the organization’s second biggest annual fundraiser. Proceeds help fund community projects such as the Bringing Downtown Alive! Concerts, the DDRA Improvement Incentive Program, Darlington Veterans Memorial, streetscape and beautification projects, and business networking, among other things.
Last year at the annual tournament held in June due to COVID restrictions, City of Darlington took first place in the 2020 tournament, followed by Darlington County Water & Sewer Authority and Marlboro Development Team.
