Habitat for Humanity of Horry County held its 17th annual golf tournament on September 13, 2023 at TPC Myrtle Beach. This year’s tournament was the fourth year of the tournament being named in memory of local volunteer, Kelsey McGhee.
Each year, Habitat for Humanity of Horry County hosts a golf tournament to raise funds to help support its mission. Habitat for Humanity for Horry County seeks to put God’s love into action, bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. Since inception in 1990, the local Habitat affiliate has partnered with more than 170 families to help them obtain safe, decent and affordable housing.
Habitat Horry County is striving to increase and expand its impact year over year, throughout the county. One local volunteer particularly made a significant impact on the community and the organization – Kelsey McGhee. In May of 2020, the local community lost Kelsey. A Carolina Forest High School graduate and volunteer, she was also a very important member of the Clemson University Chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Her love of the organization, of her community, of building things, and of giving back to others was immeasurable.
The 2023 tournament was presented by East Coast Honda/Volkswagen. It was held for the second year in a row at TPC Myrtle Beach.
Each year, the tournament attracts participants and businesses from throughout Horry County. Funds raised by the event go directly back into building a Habitat home in partnership with a local family.
Habitat for Humanity of Horry County is pleased to announce that close to $50,000 was raised as a result of this year’s fundraising effort.
