ISRAEL BROOKS MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT
Israel Brooks Memorial Golf Tournament is held every year on Columbus Day in October. The event marks the anniversary for the golf tournament. Each year Israel Brooks Foundation supports graduating high school students and college undergraduates by providing scholarships to make academic dreams a reality. Israel Brooke Foundation’s minimum scholarship award is $500 (academic year), and each scholarship is made possible by generous donors. Scholarship applications are typically due in June each year and scholarships are awarded each August for use in the upcoming academic year.
The Israel Brooks Memorial Golf Tournament was established in 2008. The tournament is named in honor of the late Major Israel Brooks, Jr. - the first African American State Trooper in South Carolina and an U.S. Marshal - who loved the game of golf. The Israel Brooks Memorial Golf Tournament is designed to generate funds to help students financially obtain a college education.
Proceeds from the tournament will provide scholarships to high school and undergraduate students in pursuit of educational excellence.
