Golf Tournament

The Coca-Cola Classic Scholarship Golf Tournament Presented by South Atlantic Galvanizing

The SCC Foundations Coca-Cola Classic is held annually in August or September on both of the beautiful courses at Pine Needles and Mid Pines Golf Clubs.  It is always a great day on the course, a great day to socialize and have fun, and a great day to get together to support our students.  When we started this tournament over twenty years ago, we had no idea how popular it would become, how many friends we would make, and how many students would be helped by the generosity of our players.  What has happened has just been fantastic!

During the past 20 years our tournament has netted over $650,000 for student scholarships at Sandhills.  This has enabled us to award $58,000 annually to deserving Sandhills students who are willing to do the work and take responsibility for their own success.  Funds raised contribute to 10 scholarship pools that award between 20 and 30 scholarships per year.  Funds are also used to award smaller scholarships to as many as 20 of our GED program graduates if they choose to continue their Sandhills education and enroll in college.

The Coca-Cola Classic is made possible through the very generous local support of the Aberdeen Coca-Cola Bottling Company, the Pine Needles Resort and Golf Club, and South Atlantic Galvanizing. ‚ Each year players are treated to a wonderful breakfast from our local Panera Bread, lunch from the Bonefish Grill, plenty of beverages from Aberdeen Coca-Cola and R.A Jeffreys Distributing Company as well as many other great treats and prizes!

Always a great day for our college and our students the only thing that would make it any better is if you were playing for this great cause with us!
