When school’s out, golf clubs swing – in October, at least, when Winston Churchill High School hosts its annual benefit golf classic memorializing the life of an alum.
The Winston Churchill High School golf classic is held each year in honor of a 1998 Churchill graduate, Brian Song, who drowned in Ocean City in the fall of 2003. Song was a Churchill football player, and a fund was established in his honor to support Churchill athletics and to sponsor a yearly scholarship. This year’s classic takes place Friday, Oct. 19.
Montgomery County public school students and teachers will have the day off as administrators head to fall conferences. Registration and a welcome breakfast start at 7 a.m., with a “shotgun” tee time at 8:30 a.m., at the Whiskey Creek Golf Course in Ijamsville, MD.
The cost of $250 per player includes 18 holes of golf, breakfast, range balls, event apparel, lunch, drinks and more. For more information contact Churchill Booster Club Committee Golf Classic Chair Wayne Arden at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The homecoming weekend also includes a wellness weekend, in which students are granted a reprieve from homework, as well as the Churchill-Springbrook home football game.
