MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (Jan. 22, 2015) – The Milligan College men’s and women’s golf teams spent their Monday, January 19, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, at the Elizabethton Golf Course in a day of volunteer service.
Team members performed multiple tasks at EGC including removal and disposal of pine cones from greens, fairways and tee boxes, picking and cleaning golf balls from the driving range, clearing brush and limbs around the parking lot area, and grooming an area around the matted hitting area on the range.
“EGC and course superintendent Louie Hopkins have been good to us over the years,” commented Head Coach Tony Wallingford. “We wanted to express our appreciation to them with a day of service. “Volunteering is something we want to expose our players to with a hope that they will become servant leaders throughout their lifetime.”
The Buffs golf teams do as many as three service days throughout the year.
While golf practice has begun, the spring tournament season will start Feb. 27 – March 1 with the women’s team heading to the Callaway Gardens Invitational in Pine Mountain, Georgia. The men will play their first tourney of the spring season March 6-8 at the Tusculum Invitational in Greeneville, Tennessee.
