The event was a reverent celebration in memory of Deputy Ryan Hendrix of the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office who gave his life in service to his community when killed in the line of duty on September 10th, 2020. Participants played a round of golf at Cummings Cove Golf Course and took on the challenge of the longest drive and closest-to-the pin contest. When the rounds were completed, volunteers & players enjoyed a delicious meal & awards ceremony with prizes.


Jeff Hendrix, brother of Ryan Hendrix, addresses the attendees.

The tournament hosted over 80 golfers including Coach Roy Williams.
