Lexington, SC (WLTX) -- A golf charity in Lexington hopes to help provide scholarships for students looking to get into summer camps at Glenforest School.
Golfers tee'd off at the Golden Hills Golf Course in for a day of fun for a good cause. Glenforest Schools head of school says 100 perecent of the Clubs for Camps tournament proceeds go to providing summer camp scholarship opportunities for students.
"Many of our families have had difficult times and we have been able to support them through camp scholarships," said Winkler. "The kids come to learn social skills. Camp skills. Work on math. Angry birds camp is on of our favorites."
Kids don't have to be enrolled in the school to attend camp. The summer camps aim to teach kids who may learn differently. From students who learn traditionally to others with unique learning needs like A.D.D or Autism.
Larry Stohs has golfed the course before but says Monday's event for charity makes it even more special.
"A lady came to our rotary club and made a presentation and I just sort of fell in love with it and said if there is something I can do to support then I want to do that," said Stohs.
Golfers spent the day maneuvering their way around the course, while volunteers worked behind the scenes.
"Just seeing some of the great people who come out in the community to come out and help support the kids and Glenforest," said volunteer Lee Knopf.
"The volunteers have been phenomenal, the golf committee did an incredible job," said Winkler.
A day of golfing that hopes to help better the education of children in the community. While the official numbers are not out quite yet, event organizers believe Monday's tournament raised more than $8,000 for scholarships.
