COLUMBIA, S.C. – The Lou Holtz Chick-fil-A Golf Classic, which will benefit charitable and educational causes, will be held June 7-8 at Kiawah Island, SC. The tournament will be played at the Osprey Point and Turtle Point Courses at Kiawah. Chick-fil-A is the primary sponsor. Tournament applications may be picked up at Chick-fil-A restaurants in Columbia, Florence, Greenville, Charleston, Sumter and Myrtle Beach. The cost is $500 per player/$2,000 per team.
The two-day tourney features a power ball 18-hole format each day, lunch, pictures with Coach Holtz, a dinner party on June 7 and an awards luncheon on June 8. All entry fees are tax deductible.
Proceeds from the event will go to the Lou Holtz Charitable Foundation, which is a non-profit grant making corporation. Founded in 1998 by Lou and Beth Holtz, the mission of the Foundation is to promote Christianity, education and charity. One of the Foundation’s largest gifts came last year to the Thomas Cooper Library at USC. This $25,000 gift established the Lou and Beth Holtz Library Endowment for Undergraduate Resources. Other gifts go towards providing scholarship funds for vocational education and religious activities.
“The primary purpose of this tournament is to provide opportunities for others,” said Coach Holtz. “I can assure the participants that they will enjoy the tournament, but more importantly, they will be lending a helping hand to their fellow man. That’s something my wife and I strongly believe in.”
