GOLF SCRAMBLE INVITATIONAL, benefiting Deep Well Project
GANA is hosting a golf scramble invitational on the renowned Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Golf Course, just steps from the Marriott. Enjoy an afternoon on the fairway with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean at the 10th hole.
If the time for fun isn't enough of a reason to participate, perhaps Hilton Head's Deep Well Project will seal the deal. Deep Well Project was founded in 1973 and is a non-profit organization benefitting the citizens of the Hilton Head Island community. GANA will be donating the proceeds of the golf scramble invitational to Deep Well Project. Please join us in supporting this worthy organization and having a meaningful impact on the community in which we'll be meeting!
