Dig out your favorite golf shoes and practice your swing for the Whitfield Education Foundation’s 18th Annual Select Shot Golf Tournament this month.

Everyone is invited to enjoy a great day of golf, food, and fun at this annual event on Monday, April 30. All tournament proceeds help fund innovative teaching grants in our local schools, which provide an opportunity for teachers to use new and creative ideas to motivate and challenge students.

Shotgun start time is 1:00 p.m. Space is limited, so please complete a registration form and return it to the foundation office as soon as possible to secure a spot in the tournament.

The cost for a team of four to register is $550 and individual registrations are $150. The registration price includes green fees, cart, unlimited range balls, tournament favors, and a buffet lunch catered by the Country Club. Trophies will be awarded to each member of the winning teams.

Presenting tournament sponsors are M.B. Kahn, Mohawk Industries, Perkins+Will, and Windstream. A golfer lucky enough to hit a hole-in-one on the 9th hole will get a brand new car from sponsor Pye Kia of Dalton.

The foundation has awarded more than $383,000 in grants since it was established in 1990 and is eager to continue increasing it’s investment in students and teachers! Please contact Mary Ellen Kinsey, executive director of the foundation, with any questions about the tournament or the foundation’s work in Whitfield County Schools. Reach her by email at or by phone at (706) 217–6756.
