Chatham County Golf Classic coming to Pittsboro on May 15

The 11th annual tournament will be hosted by the CCCC Foundation.


The Central Carolina Community College Foundation will host its 11th annual Chatham County Golf Classic on May 15 at the Chapel Ridge Golf Course in Pittsboro.

The proceeds from the tournament will be used to help provide scholarships and other financial assistance.

"We are so grateful for the support we have received in Chatham County,” Dr. Emily C. Hare, the CCCC Foundation executive director, said. “Chatham County has given so much to us and we will use funds raised in the tournament to go directly back to our students, faculty, and staff. We look forward to the event and hope everyone will come out and join us!”

The format of the tournament is a four-person Captain’s Choice flighted, meaning there will be four-person teams competing against each other. There will be a shotgun start at 9 a.m., meaning all teams will have the same tee-time but at different holes, and lunch will be held from 1-2 p.m.

The CCCC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization affiliated with, but independent of, Central Carolina Community College. It receives donations of money and equipment on behalf of the college and uses them to promote its educational mission and assist students through scholarships and grants.

The foundation holds three golf tournaments each year, running the event in Harnett and Lee Counties in addition to Chatham. The 11th annual Harnett Golf Classic already happened on March 21, but the 35th annual Lee Golf Classic will be held on Sept. 18 at Sanford Golf Course in Sanford.
