From a foray in motorsport to numerous golf tournament wins and ties to a prominent church’s sports ministry, Johnny Dangerfield’s love of sports is evident.
A keen sportsman, John Cornelius Dangerfield has numerous ties to motorsport, golf, and a variety of other sporting activities and affiliations. During the last decade, the South Carolina sportsman has scooped multiple tournament victories at prestigious golf venues including Bulls Bay Golf Club and the Daniel Island Club.
Dangerfield is also an active supporter of Seacoast Church and has now spent several years backing the organization’s sports ministry. A non-denominational church located close to Dangerfield’s home in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, Seacoast Church is one of just a small number of such organizations to boast its own sports ministry, and of which the sportsman is an avid supporter. Backed by individuals such as Dangerfield, Seacoast Sports has gone from strength to strength in recent years.
“While I have a deep love for many sports, it’s golf about which I’m most passionate,” reveals Dangerfield, who has also taken part in high-octane motorsport events such as the Annual Discount Auto Parts 200, held in Lakeland, Florida.
Owner of Automaxx of the Carolinas, an automotive dealership based in Summerville, Dangerfield has scooped numerous golf trophies in the last decade. From Bulls Bay Golf Club in Awendaw, where he picked up tournament wins in 2008, 2015, and 2017, to Charleston’s Daniel Island Club where he scooped back-to-back tournament wins in 2017 and 2018, Dangerfield is indeed a passionate golfer. “At the Daniel Island Club, my golf partner and I enjoyed back-to-back tournament wins in both the 2017 Fall Hunt and 2018 Spring Chase tournaments,” he reveals.
Off the golf course, Dangerfield also remains thoroughly committed to his affiliation with Seacoast Church. “John has been a godsend for the sports ministry here at the church,” explains Seacoast Church director Wes Koch. “When I first met John and mentioned that I was the director for the sports ministry at Seacoast, he was quick to respond.”
“He said to me, ‘If it has to do with God’s kingdom and sport… I’m in!'” adds Koch of Dangerfield and his ties to the religious organization’s sports ministry. The Automaxx of the Carolinas owner has subsequently earned the title of Seacoast Sports’ most trusted and active supporter, according to Koch.
“John consistently goes further than asked,” adds church director Koch, wrapping up, “and there’s no way we could do what we do at Seacoast Sports without his help. I count him as a blessing from God and someone I can rely on for anything.”
