Patriot’s Golf Tournament to raise money for local Republican Party, first responders
SALISBURY — The Rowan County Republican Party will host its fourth annual Patriot’s Golf Tournament on Sept. 14 at Crescent Golf Club.
Proceeds will benefit the local party.
The tournament will also raise money for county first responders through a putting contest. Participants can pay $10 for a putt or $20 for three putts, and whoever comes closest to the hole will receive half of the entry fees. The other half will go to Rowan County Emergency Medical Services and Rowan County Sheriff’s Office to help first responders and their families who have been injured or those who have fallen in the line of service.
“We did sponsor two officers from the sheriff’s department who will be playing golf on us,” party Chairman Don Vick said.
Vick said although the golf tournament raises money for the party, he thinks not enough attention is given to first responders as they continuously put their lives on the line.
Several local elected officials will attend the tournament, including N.C. Reps. Harry Warren, R-76, and Larry Pittman, R-83, and N.C. Sen. Carl Ford, R-33. Reps. Josh Dobson, R-85, and Jon Hardister, R-59, also are scheduled to attend.
Registration will continue until the day of the tournament. The price per golfer is $75 until Saturday and will go up to $100 per golfer on Sept. 14.
Rowan County first responders will receive a discount of $9.11 when they show a copy of their badge at registration.
The tournament will be a modified captain’s choice format. There will be gifts and prizes for the first team overall, the longest drive and closest to the pin.
Kidd said the tournament is a “fun way to raise money.”
Those who don’t want to play golf can volunteer at the tournament.
Hours for the tournament are noon to 6 p.m. Sept. 14 at Crescent Golf Club, 220 Laurel Valley Way.
