Southeast s Scholarship Golf Tournament attracts record field

A record field of 18 foursomes participated in the yearly Lilian Faye Simpson Scholarship Golf Tournament held August 1 at Sleepy Hollow Golf Course at Cumberland. Golfers from across the region enjoyed 18 holes of competitive golf and camaraderie and all for a good cause assisting deserving students in their quest to attend college and gain a degree. Proceeds from the tourney go toward scholarships at Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College. The event celebrated its 27th year and corporate sponsors included the Kentucky Coal Academy and ARH, with ABS/Xerox as gold sponsors. According to Tiffany B. Scott, event director, the 2015 scramble format event was divided into two flights with play beginning at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. It was a wonderful event, she noted. And, we so very much appreciate our sponsors and those golfers who participated. Our committee works very hard to make it a fun time and a successful one as well, as we work to help deserving students attend the college. Once again, Creech Chevrolet, Buick and GMC sponsored an automobile that could have been won by the first golfer who recorded a hole-in-one on a designated par-tree hole. No golfer recorded the ace.
