Thank you to our presenting sponsor:

Joe Dumphy Memorial Golf Scholarship tournament
set for Saturday, September 8
     On June 27, 2015 a tragic auto accident while leaving Chestatee Golf Club led to the death of promising young golf standout, Joe Dumphy.  After a month of trying to recover, young Dumphy passed away on July 26, 2015, donating five vital organs so others could live.
     Joe’s parents, Charley and Deb Dumphy, along with his sister Olivia, started The Joe Dumphy Memorial Golf Scholarship (JDMGS) 501(c)(3) charity which recognizes local college-bound high school seniors that emulate Joe’s character, citizenship, faith-based attitude and sense of giving.  In the three years of existence, the foundation has awarded more than $32,000.00 in scholarships.  JDMGS is able to provide the scholarships due to the generosity of the community, fundraising efforts, family donations and the success of the memorial golf tournament held at Chestatee Golf Club in Dawsonville each year.
     Year after year the golf tournament has grown from an original field of approximately 60 golfers to almost 80 the second year to over 90 last year and hopefully a full field of 144 players this year, making this one of the major charitable tournaments in the area.  The scramble format tournament will be held at Chestatee Golf Club on Saturday September 8, 2018.  The $125.00 tournament fee includes greens and cart fees, breakfast, lunch and frozen custard desert bar provided by Freddy’s Hamburgers & Custard.  Beyond that, players receive raffle tickets for dozens of outstanding prizes donated by local merchants as well as the chance for the Grand Prize of a Big Green Egg.  A separate 50/50 raffle will also be conducted at the end of the luncheon.  On the golf course, players will compete for Closest to the Pin prizes on all five par 3 holes, longest drive for men and women and this year, for the first time, a hole-in-one on #17 (where Little Joe had a hole-in-one) will win the player a 2-year lease on a Cadillac from Atlanta Classic Cadillac/Subaru.
     Anyone interested in playing in this charity event that helps local college-bound high school seniors, please call Chestatee Golf Club at 706-216-7336 to register yourself or your foursome.   Your support can make the difference in the future education of a local high school graduate!
