Annual golf tourney was a success
Placeholder Image
Editor, Brigadier General Robert H. Anderson Camp 1919 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans hosted the 5th annual Confederate Heritage Classic Golf Tournament on March 24.
We would like to take a moment to let all the sponsors, golfers and workers how much we appreciate them for making the event a wonderful success.
The afternoon started with lunch and the players were served a smoked BBQ meal cooked by Frank Stetson and his crew of cooks from  the camp as well as a table full of homemade desserts that was provided by their wives.
Seventeen teams participated and cash prizes were paid out to the first, second and third place teams. Prizes were awarded for the individual par three closeups and long drives. Additionally, a new, red, EZ-Go Golf Cart provided by Golf Cart Sales in Jesup was available to anyone who could have made a hole-in-one on hole 13.
After the team and individual prizes were awarded, a door prize raffle was held with every participant winning a gift from the prize tables.
The great weather and condition of the course provided for some excellent golf and some very good scores were handed in at the end of the day.
The winning team, with a score of 12 under consisted of Jim Weil, Chris Brinker, Bo Strickland and Slade Sikes. The second and third place teams tied at 11 under and second place was awarded in a scorecard playoff to the team of Kenny Stohl, Matt Middleton, Mike Dixon and Chris Dixon. Third place went to the team of Mary Hubbs, Jeff Stewart, Bob Puckett, and Dennis Sell. Congratulations to these fine golfers and all the teams that participated.

We would especially like to thank Ronnie Mobley and his staff at Cherokee Rose Golf Course for their hospitality.

This tournament is an annual event that funds the camp’s budget during the year and provides for its projects and programs dealing with education, heritage preservation, and maintaining the memory of our Confederate ancestors and their true history. We hope to see everyone who participated, again next year.
