For the seventh consecutive year, golfers, construction professionals and nonprofit leaders came together this September to support the community through the Plano-Coudon Golf Classic.
Held at a new venue, the Woodholme Country Club in Pikesville, the tournament offered golfers an opportunity to play a challenging, private course.
“It’s a very tight course with very narrow fairways, narrow greens and a lot of hills. It’s not a very forgiving course and many golfers enjoyed that challenge,” said Justin Vega, co-chair of the organizing committee.
The event also provided golfers and sponsors with an opportunity to learn about and support three area nonprofits – Catholic Charities, United Way of Central Maryland and Erickson Living’s Benevolent Care Fund (a nonprofit that enables Erickson residents who experience financial crises, to remain in their homes).
The 2019 Plano-Coudon Golf Classic raised $40,000 for those organizations. Since its inception, the annual event has raised about $300,000 for local nonprofits.
