Take a swing to benefit Penn State Harrisburg athletics
Enjoy a round of golf while supporting local athletes at the 7th annual Penn State Harrisburg golf tournament, presented by Orthopedic Associates of Lancaster. This year’s tournament will be held Monday, May 22, 2017. The tournament was originally scheduled for September 30, 2016, but was postponed due to severe weather.
Due to high demand, the tournament has expanded to two courses in Harrisburg – Colonial Golf and Tennis Club and Blue Ridge Golf and Tennis Club. All proceeds support Penn State Harrisburg’s NCAA Division III intercollegiate athletic program, which includes numerous graduates from local high schools.
Join us for our biggest event yet and enjoy a relaxing game of golf; interact with college athletes, coaches, and athletic administrators; and support the Penn State Harrisburg athletics department. Participants will be awarded prizes for first, second, and third place. Additional competitions include closest to the pin, long drive, straight drive, power drive, putting contest, beat the pro, and several hole-in-one contests.
The cost for individual golfers is $125 and $500 for a team of four. Non-golfers may attend lunch for $25, which will be held after the tournament is completed at approximately 2:30 p.m.
Sponsorship opportunities are available, including $5,000 for tournament sponsors; $3,000 for eagle sponsors; and $2,000 for birdie sponsors. These sponsorships receive year-round recognition on the Penn State Harrisburg athletics website, in campus buildings, and home competition sites. Additional sponsorships include $1,000 for par sponsors; $500 for cart sponsors; $500 for contest hole sponsors; and $100 for hole sponsors.
Through fundraising efforts, the college strives to expand facilities and support athletic programs that will provide more opportunities for student-athletes to reach the highest levels of individual and team achievement.
