There were 25 teams and about 88 golfers that came out to Eaglesticks Golf Club in Zanesville to help raise money for the Zane State College Foundation.
"Our purpose is to raise money for scholarships and enrollment at Zane State College is up for the past several years and with that comes increased financial need. So a day like today we’re out on the course having a lot of fun and raising money to help people in our community go to college," said Pamela Jira, Executive Director for the Zane State College Foundation.
The golfers were served lunch before their full day of golfing and even got tips from PGA professionals.The golfers were served lunch before their full day of golfing and even got tips from PGA professionals.
"We talked about a lot of different things of the fundamentals of the golf swing, myself and general manager Kelly Morrow, he’s also a PGA professional. We talked about things that we thought could help the people out here on the golf course . In reality they’ll probably be thinking about everything we said and play a lot worse today, but in the future we hope their golf game gets better," said Jimmy Hanlin, PGA professional.
The annual golf outing usually raises enough money to award five, $1,000 dollar scholarships to Zane State College students
