Teeing it up for a friend and to fight Alzheimer’s

Rincon Mayor Ken Lee, center, holds a proclamation of support for the second annual David Jimenez Open alongside Joe Fletcher (Tournament Co-Chairman) and Arlene Jimenez (Tournament Co-Chairman)

Even as David Jimenez slipped into the grasp of Alzheimer’s, he continued to play golf and impart lessons about the game he loved.

Today, he’s a resident at Savannah Commons’ Arbors Memory Care facility, but his friends and supporters will be teeing it up at Lost Plantation for Jimenez and the thousands of others afflicted with Alzheimer’s.

The second annual David Jimenez Open Golf Tournament will be held at Lost Plantation Golf Club on Oct. 6, with a shotgun start at 9 a.m., skill contests, prizes and a silent auction to follow. The tournament, a four-person captain’s choice scramble, is open to the first 36 teams, and single players are welcome.

But the main goal isn’t just low scores — it’s raising money and awareness for Alzheimer’s.

“David is marvelous. He’s a wonderful guy,” said his wife Arlene Jimenez. “Everyone loves him.”

Even as Jimenez suffered from Alzheimer’s, the new friends he made at Lost Plantation Golf Club in Rincon, including Joe Fletcher, continued to get him out on the course.
