The Spalding County Sheriff’s Office on Oct. 4 hosted the second annual Sheriff Darrell Dix Golf Tournament at Sun City Peachtree, with proceeds benefitting the Georgia Sheriff’s Youth Homes, Spalding County Jr. Deputy Program, the Griffin Police Department/Spalding County Sheriff’s Office Explorer Post 3507 and the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office Santa Sheriff Program.

This year’s tournament included 36 teams with a total of 144 players. The National Anthem was performed by Rebecca Howell, a contestant on last year’s season of “The Voice,” and Pastor Tim Conort, of Union Baptist Church led a prayer before the shotgun start.

“Last year’s tournament netted $22,956.55 and our goal this year was to top that mark. With the help of our tournament sponsors, players, and SCSO employees, the 2019 tournament netted $26,200.00,” Dix said. “Even in the blazing heat, we had a lively group of players that wholeheartedly support our youth outreach, and the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office. We can’t thank them, our sponsors, tournament contributors, Sun City Peachtree Golf Club, and the whole Spalding County community enough for their continued support. When you read the list of these supporters and businesses and you see them out and about, or visit one of their businesses, please let them know how much they are appreciated. Their efforts better the lives of our local youth through the Jr. Deputy and Explorer Programs, and youth across the state through the Georgia Sheriff’s Youth Homes.”
