Africa University golf tourney
The 2019 Bishop L. Jonathan Holston South Carolina-Africa University golf tournament will be held Monday at the Orangeburg Country Club, 2745 Griffith Drive NW.
The event, which moves to Orangeburg after several years in Columbia, will be played in a modified four-person captain’s choice. Registration is at 9 a.m. with a shot-gun tee-off set for 10 a.m.
The event will also feature a silent auction as well as an awards luncheon following the completion of the tournament, which has as its lead sponsor Wespath Institutional Investments, the pensions agency of the United Methodist Church.
“Westpath’s support, along with the move to a premier South Carolina golf course and the efforts of a new organizing team, is taking the event to a new level,” said James H. "Jim" Salley, Africa University’s chief advance officer. “Westpath’s business is the church and they have chosen to invest in scholarships, apportionments and the $50 million Campaign for Africa University.”
