In 2000, the Rainsville Chamber of Commerce launched the first Golf Tournament Scholarship Program at the Rainsville Golf and Country Club. From 2012 until 2015, the Chamber awarded three $1,500 scholarships. In 2016, the scholarship tournament raised more than $9,000, which resulted in the award of six $1,500 scholarships, and the 2017 tournament was a huge success with the scholarship tournament raising $15,000, for ten $1,500 scholarships awarded in May of 2018.
The August 18, 2018 tournament raised $18,000 that was awarded in twelve $1,500 scholarships to Plainview High School and Cornerstone Christian Academy in May, 2019.
To date, the chamber has awarded $97,600 in scholarship to Plainview and Cornerstone Christian Academy
The growth of this scholarship program is due to the overwhelming support of our corporate, apparel, team, hole sponsors and golfers.
