Raines Edenfield is the league golf instructor for Godwin Creek and says one goal of the tournament is to encourage youth golf throughout the area.
“The Optimist Club tournament is the annual club tournament put on by the Optimist Club to benefit Fore Kids. And what it is – is through all of our sponsorships, everybody comes free, and there’s a bunch of good prizes. It’s free food and free lunch and free breakfast and all the kids really enjoy it,” says Edenfield.
He says all kids are welcome to come out.
“We prefer that you know a little bit about golf just cause it is a tournament, but if not – we’ll help you along the way. We have clubs that we can give to you that are on us that you can play in the tournament with, and we just like to see everybody come out,” says Edenfield.
Registration for the tournament can be done 30 minutes prior to tee time at Godwin Creek or you can register early by calling 706-587-3224 or email STEPHANIE@ABMCOL.COM.
