The RTP Campus of Campbell University partnered with the Morrisville Chamber of Commerce for their annual Spring Golf Classic, held Wednesday, May 13, at the Lonnie Poole Golf Course in Raleigh, NC. Jordan Foster, Scott Higginbotham and Travis Goodwin, all students at Campbell's RTP campus, along with Instructor Jim Huskins, made up Team Orange, the first-ever Campbell RTP golf team.
Mother Nature blessed us with perfect golf weather for the shot-gun 9:00 AM tee time. The format was "Captain's Choice" and each team member was a valuable contributor. While Team Orange didn't place in the top three overall finishers, they did place #1 in the qualifier for the $4000 putt-off challenge. That meant that Jordan, Scott, Travis and Jim each had the opportunity to sink a 50-foot putt for a cash prize of $1000 each. All so close, but none dropped in. The golfers did end up with some great prizes, including a cooking basket, tickets to the symphony and gift certificates for local restaurants. Let's not forget their bright orange Campbell golf shirts!
We are all looking forward to our next tournament in the fall!
