Allen Hancock Wins the Pebble Beach Bucket List Sweepstakes


SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. (January 25, 2021) -- Allen Hancock of Columbia, S.C. has won the glittering prize of the Pebble Beach Bucket List Sweepstakes. The longtime Spring Valley Country Club member said, “I registered on January 6th at about midnight when a buddy texted me the link. He sent the text and wrote ‘pretty sure I will win this’.” Little did his friend know that Hancock would eventually win and plan to bring him along for this once in a lifetime getaway.

Hancock has played golf since he was 13 years old, played in college and also coached for his local high school for 14 years. Throughout his time coaching at Spring Valley he worked with many impressive juniors including a young Jonathan Byrd. Being so heavily involved in junior and amateur golf he remarked, “I have been lucky enough to play many of the top 100 courses in the world and Pebble Beach is the last course on my bucket list so this is just an incredible gift for me.”

Congratulations to Allen and thank you to everyone that entered. Stay tuned for more unbelievable enter-to-win sweepstakes.
