The Turnley and Betty Todd Educational Foundation has announced its seventh annual Charity Golf Tournament to raise money for the continued awarding of a pair of $2,000 scholarships to Gloucester High School student/athletes.

This year will see a new course host the event, as Hobbs Hole in Tappahannock looks to welcome nearly 100 golfers, family, and friends for the Saturday, April 13 fundraiser.

In years past more local courses like The Golden Eagle or King Carter hosted the event, which typically draws around 20 teams.

“The pro at Hobbs Hole—Troy—gave us a great deal and it is a great course,” said David P. Teagle, a former football player at GHS and one of the board members of the foundation. 

The foundation was created by former GHS student/athletes, many of whom played under coach Turnley Todd, to recognize the years he and his wife Betty gave to Dukes’ athletics.

Todd coached Gloucester’s varsity football team from 1976-1993, going 76-65-1 in his career and leading the Dukes on multiple district playoff runs in AA competition.
