EMBDC hosts annual golf tournament this Friday

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - This Friday is the 23rd Annual EMBDC Golf Classic at Northwood Country Club. Tee times are at 8:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. To register, you can visit EMBDC.org or give the office a call for an application.

EMBDC Event Coordinator, Casey Holladay say they look forward to this event each year, and hope this year will be just as successful.

“This is a fundraiser for the EMBDC, this is the one thing we do to raise funds for us. So obviously we’re also a non-profit and so we work to be able to do things for the benefit of our members. And this is just one of the ways were able to do that.”

The cost is $125 per player to register. Holladay says it’s a great time for the community to get together and a play a round of 18 holes, while giving back.

“It brings our members together. They’re able to network, go out on the course and have a fun afternoon or morning just playing golf. Some people bring all their employees some people bring customers, it’s a really great time,” says Holladay.

Holladay says the event usually hosts about 120 participants each year.
