The 11th Annual USC Aiken Golf Classic was held Monday at the Reserve in Woodside Plantation, and helped raise around $9,000 in student scholarships. This year, 60 golfers teed off at the Reserve. Of those, approximately one third were alumni.

Since the inception of the golf classic in 2005, more than $90,000 in scholarships have been awarded to undergraduate students. In the past three years, tournament-funded scholarships have enabled more than 25 students the opportunity to pursue their educational goals.

Congratulations to our tournament winners Gerry Owen, David Cooper, Sam Roberts, and Chris Bryant!
