Reinhardt University United Methodist Scholarship Golf Outing     

Reinhardt University Announces over $31,000 in Scholarships Raised from United Methodist Scholarship Golf Outing; Congratulates Winners of Tournament

Reinhardt College, a United Methodist-affiliated institution, hosted its annual United Methodist Scholarship Golf Outing on Tuesday, May 18 at Big Canoe. The event raised more than $28,000, with proceeds supporting scholarships for Reinhardt students who are United Methodists and those who are pursuing a full-time career in the ministry.

"One of our strongest selling points for support of the golf outing is that 100 percent of every dollar raised goes directly to student scholarships," said the Rev. Dr. Ron Flowers, golf tournament chairman and retired pastor. "The success of the golf outing is certainly due to the hard work of the College staff and the support of the local churches and ministers. People know a good cause when they see it, and they want to support it and make a difference in the lives of these outstanding students."

The top awards for the tournament went to two teams. The team of Jay Hodges, Ron Flowers, Johnny Connor and Fank Houser, who represented Northside United Methodist Church in Atlanta, Ga., won the award for "First Low Gross" team. The award for "First Low Net" went to the team of E.R. Mitchell, Wayne Copper, David Walters and Mathew Leiter from Cascade United Methodist Church in Atlanta, Ga. Twenty-four United Methodist churches were represented at the golf outing.

"Players participate, year after year, partly because we provide a fun and competitive tournament," said Flowers, "but more importantly because they want to support the students and the College in some meaningful way!"

A combination of clergy and lay people make up most foursomes.  The Fort Lauderdale system is used.  All four players drive and then hit from the best ball position after each shot until holed out - record gross score.  Each players turns in a handicap (maximum 30) or average score.  Team handicap will be fairly adjusted by supervising pro.  Course allows soft spikes only.
