The Bowden Senior Men’s Golf Association of Macon Georgia completed its annual weekly excursion in Gulf Port Mississippi, September 12 – 15, 2017, and a great time was had by all 31 golfers who graced the greens of the Grand Bear, The Oaks and Sunkist courses.
The Bowden Senior Men’s Golf Association, Inc. also hosted its annual (Albert Miller) Scholarship Golf Classic during the month of June to support educational and charitable purposes as specified under section 501c (3) under the Federal Tax Code and Georgia Nonprofit Corporation Code.
More specifically, the Scholarship Golf Classic is organized to promote junior golf for those who otherwise may have little or no opportunity to learn and play golf as a life-long recreation activity. $4,000 in gross funds were raised towards the cause ($1000 net), and on June 17, 2017, University of West Georgias scholarship recipient Akiva Jalese Russell received the award.
