Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach is excited to announce that the 26th Annual Charity Golf Tournament is on May 22 at the exclusive Golf Club at Briar’s Creek on Johns Island.
Golfers will enjoy a round of golf in a four-player team format, lunch, refreshments, door prizes, gift bags and dinner at the clubhouse. Early bird pricing is $425 per player or $1600 for a foursome through April 30. The price will increase to $450 per player or $1800 for a foursome until registration closes May 15. Foursome teams must pay in full at time of registration.
The tournament will have a shotgun start at 1 p.m., with registration starting at 11:30 a.m. A dinner at the clubhouse and an awards ceremony will follow.
All proceeds from the 26th Annual Charity Golf Tournament will go directly to Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach’s mission to encourage and support self-sufficiency and self-worth for people in need in our community through education, wellness and outreach services throughout the Lowcountry.
The Golf Club at Briar’s Creek was designed by the award-winning Rees Jones, with picturesque views of the Kiawah River embracing the Lowcountry landscape.
“We are only able to help our community when individuals share their blessings with us to change lives. We look forward to an exciting day of fundraising to support the organization. This tournament provides many the chance to ‘golf for giving’ and make a difference in the lives of over 6,000 children and adults we serve on the Sea Islands and in downtown Charleston,” says Ericka Plater, Executive Director of Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach.
