The Phillip Fulmer Golf Classic has been impacting young lives for more than 20 years! On July 1, 1979, the first D.D. Lewis Celebrity Golf Tournament was held at Whittle Springs Golf Course. D.D. is a Club alumnus who played football at Fulton High School. He went on to play at college ball at Mississippi State and professionally with the Dallas Cowboys.
The tournament was made possible through the efforts of its founders, Tournament Director Emmett P. “Buck” Vaughn Jr., Mr. James S. Bush, Mr. Larry Cox, and Mr. Buddy Burchell. The tournament changed its name to the Phillip Fulmer Golf Classic in 2000, and since then the tournament has raised more than $1 million for Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tennessee Valley.
