Entries and sponsorships are now being accepted for the Second Annual Karlh McCallister Memorial Golf Outing on Saturday, June 25, at Greenville Golf Course. Proceeds from the outing will benefit Bridges to College, formerly known as the Darke County College Access Program.

The golf outing is again being sponsored in memory of Greenville resident and businessman Karlh McCallister who helped form the Darke County College Access Program, now Bridges to College, in 2006.

“This outing honors Karlh, who for many years supported our community in so many different ways,” said Mike Barker, organizer of the golf outing. “We’re looking forward to an afternoon of great golf and fun, and one that benefits students in Darke County.”

Bridges to College, a non-profit organization, helps local high school students go to college through one-on-one mentoring, educational programs, and needs-based scholarships. Last year’s golf outing raised more than $11,000 for Bridges to College. “The turnout last year and response to the outing was bigger and better than we expected,” Barker said. “And most of this was due to Karlh, his friends, family, and acquaintances he worked with throughout the community.”

This year’s golf outing is scheduled for Saturday, June 25, and will begin at 1 p.m.

“There will be no increase in entry or sponsor fees, and we will use the same four-person scramble format,” Barker said. “We are working hard to keep the costs down and hope that more golfers will come out, have an enjoyable afternoon and support a worthy cause.”

An optional dinner is planned immediately after the outing and it will be $11 per person. We will also hand out prizes, are planning an auction and some entertainment.

Those wishing to register for the golf outing or to sponsor a hole can access the entry form online by clicking here to visit the Bridges to College website,, or by contacting Mike Barker at 423-1924.
