Great event. I played in the inaugural events back in the early 90s, I believe. Kathy Wake did a great job of organizing. I believe Ashworth was an early sponsor. It was always fun. I was low qualifier for the pros one year.

Good luck everyone!!

I'm rooting for you, Ashley Buckner Wood .❤

We are saddened to report the passing of our long time NCPGA Member Hank Pollex, on September 11, 2021. Through the years, Hank was always engaged in our activities, a mentor and friend to all. Most recently, Hank freely gave his time and passion as a PGA Hope Instructor, guiding our Veterans on the road to recovery.

In speaking with his family, a Celebration of Life shall be forthcoming and we shall of course pass along the information.

Our thoughts are with the Pollex family.
