Great weather, a special golf course and superb food – all combined to make the 2nd Annual TTC Pro Am golf tournament a huge success. Held at the Country Club of Charleston, the TTC Pro Am netted over $51,000 for the Trident Technical College Foundation. Sun Trust Private Wealth was the presenting sponsor.
“We are very grateful for all the members of the community who supported TTC students by playing or being a sponsor for the TTC Pro-Am," said event chair Skip Godow, who is a member of the TTC Foundation Board of Trustees. "We are lucky to have a passionate and dedicated committee who were committed to the success of the event."
The opportunity to hold the event at The Country Club of Charleston was also a key factor. According to Godow, “The Country Club only holds two tournaments a year for outside groups. Being able to hold the TTC Pro-Am at this wonderful place with it’s long history and tradition made our tournament especially attractive.”
After a great barbecue lunch provided by Swig & Swine, each of the 24 foursomes was paired with a local PGWA professional and hit the links for 18 scenic holes. At the end of play, everyone returned to the clubhouse for the Culinary Institute of Charleston’s Distinguished Alumni Extravaganza after-party.
Money raised from the tournament will support student scholarships, the student emergency fund, faculty/staff development and other critical needs throughout the college.
