Twenty-one years ago, in August 2001, a group of dedicated Masons and Brother R.C. Yoder from the Southern Pines Lodge 484, united and with the help of our communities, created a scholarship fund to help high school seniors, who in spite of unusual personal challenges, graduate with an acceptable record of accomplishment. To continue its mission, they need players and sponsors so that deserving students can have a chance for a better life, whether in a college or trade school. This tournament is the primary source of funding for this important project of the Masonic Lodge 484 of Southern Pines. They ask you to participate alone or with a friend, or contribute generously if you cannot play. They are counting on your patronage and look forward to a day filled with fun golf and great fellowship. Thank you in advance for supporting this worthy cause. 8 a.m.-Registration 9 a.m. -Shotgun Start Breakfast sandwiches, beverage and snack cart will be available for purchase. Lunch immediately following golf with a delicious Pig Pickin’ and all the trimmings. Location: Mid Pines Country Club in Southern Pines.
