Foundation Special Events
Thomas County Golf Tournament
The Annual SWGTC Foundation Golf Tournament is held each year at beautiful Glen Arven Country Club. This historic golf course is the oldest in Georgia, and was listed by the USGA as one of the first 100 clubs established in the U.S. In addition, "GOLF Magazine" recognized it in their 1995 list of "The First 100 Clubs in America." You’ll even see pictures in the clubhouse of President Eisenhower playing during one of his trips to Thomasville. What better way is there to enjoy a day of golf than on a beautiful course like Glen Arven?!
The Tournament is a four-person team scramble with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start. Tournament incentives includes generous gift certificates from the Glen Arven Pro Shop for the top 4 teams, and special prizes for “Closest to the Pin” on a par-3 hole and “Longest Drive” on a par-5 hole. There will also be many raffle prizes, which include a custom-built smoker made by SWGTC’s own Welding & Joining Technology Program.
In our Tournament, participants "Play Fore a Cause." Proceeds from the tournament support the SWGTC Foundation as it provides student scholarships, emergency assistance for students, new equipment purchases, and technical upgrades at SWGTC.
So get together a team and enjoy a day of fun with friends while also helping our students achieve their dreams!
