HCC holds charity disc golf tournament

The Haywood Community College Foundation is hosting the inaugural charity disc golf tournament, Discs in the Dogwoods, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 13, on the campus of Haywood Community College. 

This event is HCC’s version of a golf tournament with food, fun, tee times and hole sponsorships. The 18-hole course allows for players of all abilities to enjoy some time outside on the campus and experience all the fun the sport of disc golf has to offer. With morning and afternoon tee times available (9 a.m. or 1 p.m.), groups will have multiple opportunities to enjoy the revamped course.

To support the HCC Foundation, entry fees cover the player registration cost, lunch and includes a donation to the Haywood Strong scholarship, which supports workers families affected by the shutdown of Canton’s paper mill. Entry fees are $50 per person or $200 for a team of four. Prizes will be awarded in each tee time group for men, women and mixed groups.

Sponsorships for this event are also available and range from $450 to $1,750. Sponsors will be able to have a presence at the event and may include a team or partial team based on the level chosen.
