Robert W. Anderson, Jr.
Charity Golf Outing: The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards

This annual golf tournament is a major fundraiser for the Luke H. Chatman Scholarship and has also supported the Alpha Greenville Foundation. It has been held since 1996, annually since 2003. It has been held at various local golf courses in the Greenville Area. 

In 2018, this event took on a new format. The event will be a golf outing rather than a tournament. This year, it will feature access to one of the premier golf courses in the upstate, The Cliffs at Keowee Falls.

There will be a round of Golf and a pre-golf meal at the Cliffs Clubhouse for $225 per person. This will include a donation to the Alpha Greenville Foundation. 

Due to the COVID crisis, the tournaments in 2020-2023 were canceled, but we will be returning to a premier course in 2024.

Thank you to our 2019 Title Sponsor:
