Flagler NAACP to host golf tourney on Aug. 11

NAACP Golf Chairman Harry Davis has plotted his course for the 11th Annual Jacqueline A. Browne Memorial Golf Tournament slated for Aug. 11 at Pine Lakes.

In addition, he is set to receive sponsorships of $500, $350, $100 and $50 from organizations and individuals for the local branch’s efforts of promoting educational, social and economic development through community programs. Each sponsorship level has benefits that may afford the opportunity to play in the tournament without cost.

Davis has been on the move and was recorded as the Low Gross Champion for the recent 2012 Eagles Club Championship. His title was a result of a 36-hole-stroke-play tournament (with handicap) over a two-day challenge at Halifax Plantation and Palm Harbor Golf Club.

He entered the gross scores of 74 and 72 for a total of 146. This was his third consecutive defense of his title and eight overall.

Davis managed to win the 2011 Grand Club Men’s Championship for 11 of the past 13 years. The North Carolina native relocated to Palm Coast from Maryland.

He explained that contributing organizations and individuals signed up for the memorial tournament will be listed at the luncheon on a sponsorship banner and/or a sign in the teeing area
of the course.

Tribute to Browne
The Jacqueline A. Browne Memorial Golf Tournament is a tribute to Browne, who, in 2000,
revitalized the then dormant branch after being approached by individuals having experience bias. Browne passed away in 2001.

She was a New York City educator, Democratic Women’s Club president, board chairman of the African American Cultural Society, a member of the Palm Coast Service District Advisory, and president of the advisory’s Public Works Committee.

Registration begins 7 a.m., followed by the shotgun start at 8 a.m. The fee for the four-person scramble is $75, which includes greens and cart fees, awards, breakfast and lunch.
