It had to put off a week thanks to Hurricane Matthew, but the 23rd Kelly’s Hospitality Group Annual Charity Golf Tournament is still on. The date has been moved from October 17 to October 24, but one of the longest running—if not the longest running—charity golf tournaments on the Outer Banks is still happening.
Held at Nags Head Links, right now the weather is looking as good as it gets. Temperatures are forecast to be in the low 70s with sunny skies and a light breeze from the west.
That light breeze is important to know about—Nags Head Links is a links style course with the back nine open to Roanoke Sound. A light breeze should be manageable; anything over that can add two or three stories to a score.
The tournament has been remarkably successful over the years, raising almost $350,000 for the Outer Banks Community Foundation. The OBCF works exclusively with local charities and nonprofits, making sure money donated to the Outer Banks stays on the Outer Banks.
The OBCF has taken a lead role in helping local families in need after Hurricane Matthew. Working with Interfaith Community Outreach, 100% of all funds donated are going to help put lives back together. They are so committed to making sure it’s 100% that they are absorbing the credit card fees for donations to the Disaster Relief Fund.
