On March 15th, 2018, The Echols Athletics Inaugural Golf Tournament was held at the beautiful Kinderlou Forest Golf Club. The tournament was hosted by American Diversity (parents, Randy & Mary Courson) and raised $9,619 for our athletes.

 

Over 88 golfers registered before the 1PM shotgun start including some Echols Administration and Athletes. Each of the 22 teams played 18 holes. There were prizes for the top 8 teams and closest to pin on Par 3’s.

The Coursons would like to thank all those that supported The Echols Athletics Inaugural Golf Tournament. This event was only possible because of the generosity and efforts of our 45 hole sponsors, players and volunteers. Thank you for helping to make this tournament a BIG success!
