Nine-year NBA guard and Myrtle Beach High graduate Ramon Sessions is hosting a charity golf tournament in Myrtle Beach on June 25 for the fifth consecutive year, and third straight year at River Oaks Golf Club.
The four-person team captain’s choice tournament costs $50 per player and proceeds will benefit Myrtle Beach High athletics.
“I realized how popular golf was in Myrtle Beach, and I got into it and thought it would be fun if I put on a golf tournament,” Sessions said. “I do things for the kids, and this would be something for the golfers to come out and give back to the school.”
The tournament attracted 156 players last year. It has a 9 a.m. shotgun start and includes an 8 a.m. registration and breakfast, lunch, awards, gift bag, skills contests and raffle. Sessions participates and hands out awards. Donations are tax deductible.
