Golf Fun Fest 2020

by | Oct 2, 2020 | Alumni

Above: Golf Pro Ernie Rogers got the Oct. 1 Golf Fun Fest started.

The 33rd Annual Golf Fun Fest was held on Oct. 1 at Eagle Ridge Golf Course on the Raymond Campus. Usually a spring event, the tournament was rescheduled this year to fall. The primary fundraiser for the Hinds Community College Foundation, this year’s tournament was a great success as everyone enjoyed a beautiful day of golf, food and fellowship.
This year’s winners of the Polly Rabalais Memorial Trophy include, from left, Kenny Granberry, Steve Rives (1970), Buck French (1970) and Booker Ducksworth.
The tournament could not happen without volunteers from the college and the community, including setup, cleanup, cooking and other duties as needed. Cooking catfish were, from left, Lamar Currie, Wayne Boshart, Dr. Roger Jones (sitting), Anthony Brown, Clifford Irving, George Freeman and front, student Elizabeth Taylor.
Golfer Robin Foley won the $250 golf ball plunge and donated the money back to the Hinds Community College Foundation for student scholarships.
