Three Wilmington area golfers will be competing in one of the top regional tournaments for girls this weekend as the Carolina Golf Association hosts the 11th Vicki DiSantis Girls’ Championship at Pine Island Country Club in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The tournament will feature top girls from across both North and South Carolina, including Sarah Funderburg, Caroline Cahill and Jayla Rogers from the Wilmington area. Funderburg plays golf on the boys’ team at the Wilmington Christian Academy.
While most of the participants compete out of member clubs, the tournament also takes in golfers from the association’s online “eclub,” which is how Funderburg is represented. Cahill competes out of Porters Neck Country Club while Rogers will be representing Magnolia Greens Golf Course out of Leland, North Carolina.
This year marks the ninth consecutive year the tournament has been hosted by Pine Island Country Club, with all but one past champion moving on to play Division I college golf.
A Wilmington golfer will also compete in the CGA’s Carolinas Four-Ball Championship on May 4-8 at Camden Country Club, Camden, South Carolina. In a four-ball golf match, two teams of two players compete against each other. In the tournament, Wilmington golfer Eric Brown will represent the Beau Rivage Resort and Golf Club.
The Carolina Golf Association is the second largest golf association in the country with more than 700 member clubs represented by nearly 150,000 individuals.
