Friday was a great day to hit the links in Barbour County.

The Barbour County Chamber of Commerce held it's annual golf scramble and the fun all got started at about 10:00 a.m. at the Barbour County Country Club. Not only did they get to golf, participants had the chance to win about $1,000 in cash prizes. For one lucky golfer, there was even the chance to win $10,000 for making a hole in one.

While hitting the green, golfers donated to a good cause. All proceeds from the tournament are going toward scholarships for Philip Barbour High School students. It'll also help create more activities at the school for them. 

"We get a lot of really good support for the community. We've got 23 holes sponsored, which obviously 23 businesses chipped in and made a donation. That's really where we make our profit at the end of the day and are able to do some of the things we do," said Mike Cvechko, the director of the Barbour County Chamber of Commerce.

Organizers had 11 teams sign up, which they said is one of their best turnouts in years.
