The Coolest Golf Tournament @ Links at Challendon
Aug 7 @ 9:00 am – 3:30 pm

The Downtown Sykesville Connection (DSC) strives to diversify its programs and engage new volunteers.
With Leslie George-Rowe and Denise Rowe recently joining the DSC team and sharing Denise’s sister’s story, it just made sense to work together to create the “Coolest Golf Tournament” that will support the DSC’s community work and raise funds to fight Aplastic Anemia, in loving memory of Donna Carol Box.

We are excited to partner with new groups to make this event a success!

Mail-in your registration (Coolest Golf Brochure 2020) before July 7, 2020, to enjoy our early bird rate!

This new event will bring golf aficionados and beginners to the beautiful Links@ Challendon course in Mt Airy, for a day of fun, prizes, a $25,000 hole, other special hole-in-one contests on August 7, 2020, starting at 9 am.

Check-in/event day registration 7 to 8:30am.
