(Greenville) Entries now are being accepted for the Third Annual Karlh McCallister Golf Outing, planned for 1 p.m. Saturday, June 23, at the Turtle Creek Golf Course, 6545 State Route 36 East.

Proceeds from the event benefit Bridges to College.

“This has been a fun, successful event in the past,” said Marlise McCallister, who is coordinating the outing. “Last year, we had 96 golfers participate.”

McCallister encouraged golfers to register early.

“Because this outing is held on a Saturday, it is quite popular,” she said.

This year, golfers may register online at the Bridges to College website at For convenience, golfers may also pay online.

The outing will be in a four-person scramble format with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. The entry fee is $75 per person and includes green fees and golf cart. There will be golf prizes for winners as well as skills contests for closest to pin, longest drive and longest putt.

“If someone is interested in participating, but doesn’t have a team, please contact me,” McCallister said. “We will put together teams.”

The Karlh McCallister Golf Outing also is accepting corporate and hole sponsorships at this time. Hole sponsorships are $50 and corporate sponsorships are $100. Sponsorship forms are available online at the Bridges to College website.

“We hope that golfers will come out to enjoy a fun day of golf, to honor the memory of Karlh McCallister, and to support Bridges to College,” McCallister said.

Karlh McCallister, a Greenville businessman, was instrumental in starting Bridges to College, a non-profit organization that helps students go to college through educational programming, mentoring, and scholarships.

To top off a fun day of golf, the Golf Outing committee is planning a hog roast and auction with celebrity auctioneer, Matt Light, immediately following the outing.

“We will have more details about the auction in coming weeks,” McCallister said.
