HINTON, WV (WVNS) — The 32rd annual Dickie Noel Golf Tournament will be happening on Saturday, June 5, 2021. The tournament was cancelled last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dickie Noel was an athlete and had a lot of friends in Summers County. He died in a car cash about 30 years ago, and since then, his family and friends held the tournament. Each year, a senior at Summers County High School gets the opportunity to win $10,000 in scholarship money.
“Dickie was a scholar athlete, great in the academics outstanding football, baseball player, played football at Concord College,” Jim Noel his brother said.
“Everyone that has been involved and it has expanded into a wonderful event that is like a reunion. And so the tournament is to raise funds for the scholarship fund,” Kristi Scott, a committee member.
Scott said this will be the last year for the tournament to let organizers enjoy their retirement. The tournament will be held at the Willowwood Country Club.
