Held in June, this tournament was established in 2001 by retired and beloved Rock Hill High Football Coach, Jim Ringer. Jim wanted to find a way to honor his son's memory while helping others. The Brett Ringer Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament came to be!
"It has been a great joy to watch this tournament grow like it has, for as long as it has. It is wonderful to see Brett's memory living on through a tournament that has raised over $100,000 to help students around South Carolina with their school expenses. Everyone who has volunteered, donated money, sponsored, I thank you from the bottom of my heart! We wanted to honor his memory with something worthwhile, by helping other kids, Thank you- Jim Ringer!"
On its 17th year, the tournament raises money each year through teams, individuals who register to play in the tournament, through the hole sponsors, silent auction items, and through our presenting sponsor, Hospitality Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. The monies raised are divided equally to the selected recipients from each the Rock Hill High Schools, and then to students from around the state of South Carolina.
HOW THE SCHOLARSHIP WORKS: Applications are gathered from the three Rock Hill area High Schools, Northwestern, Rock Hill, South Pointe, and Lancaster. Then students are chosen from around South Carolina. The committee is then tasked with choosing deserving students and money raised from this tournament helps those students with books and college expenses.
