CCU Golf Marathon will benefit mentor program

The Professional Golf Management (PGM) program at Coastal Carolina University will host the first CCU Golf Marathon on Sunday, April 27 at Quail Creek Golf Course at Coastal Carolina University.

The all-day event, a fundraiser for CCU's Dalton and Linda Floyd Family Mentoring program, will begin at 6:25 a.m. when roughly 50 PGM students tee up for a sunrise shotgun start. The students will play continuously until sunset (8:10 p.m.). The goal is for each participant to play 100 holes of golf in one day while raising scholarship funds for CCU's mentoring program.

Funds will be raised through sponsorship of PGM students playing in the marathon. Individuals and businesses/organizations are invited to sponsor players. Sponsorship information is available on the official marathon Web site: www.coastal.edu/quailcreek/marathon.

The Dalton and Linda Floyd Family Mentoring Program was initiated at Coastal in 2003. The goal of the program is to improve South Carolina's low high school graduation rate by pairing college students with area school children in mentoring relationships. Each semester more than 200 CCU students serve as mentors to students in local elementary and middle schools. The program also provides resources to CCU faculty who incorporate mentoring in their courses and encourages civic initiatives within the K-12 environment.
