Gautier Rotary Club Student Scholarship Golf Tournament

What better way to spend your weekend than swinging the golf clubs to raise money for student scholarships along the Coast?

The Gautier Rotary Club is set to host their 31st annual Student Scholarship Golf Tournament at the Shell Landing Golf Club. The Rotary Club tries to give away 15 to 30 thousand dollars’ worth of scholarships back to students every year.

Sponsors can enjoy a great day on the course while giving back to the community and promoting their businesses. All golfers will receive goody bags, lunch, dinner, refreshments and prizes.

Tournament Chair Jim Twiggs tells News 25 the requirements for students applying for the scholarships. “There’s an application process that the guidance counselor’s handle. They get the applications to our scholarship committee. Financial need, class rank, community service, ACT scores, types of AP classes and those things will help them land those scholarships.”

Within 30 years, the Rotary Club has given away over half a million dollars towards scholarships for local students.
