FULTON, NY – One of the area’s most anticipated and largest golf tournaments, the United Way of Greater Oswego County’s Annual Golf Classic is looking to be bigger than ever this year. Scheduled for July 13, the event will be held at one of Central New York’s finest private golf courses, the Oswego County Club.
Celebrating its 20th year, the United Way Golf Classic provides community members with an opportunity to enjoy a fun day of golf while supporting their local United Way.
“We’re proud to be having our 20th Golf Classic at such a beautiful course as the Oswego County Club. This is the third year that the Oswego County Club has hosted the event and keeps getting better every year,” said United Way Resource Development Director Ali McGrath.
According to planning committee chairperson John Nelson, of the Nelson Funeral Home, the committee is working diligently to ensure that all golfers and sponsors will enjoy a great day of golf for a great cause.
“We are excited to be returning to the Oswego County Club for the United Way 2015 Golf Classic. The United Way Golf classic is an excellent opportunity for people to gather and support the mission of the United Way while enjoying a round of golf on one of New York’s finest private courses,” said Nelson.
The 2015 United Way Golf Classic will follow last year’s successful format by offering two flights of golf, an 8 a.m. tee off and a 2 p.m. tee off.
Registration for the four-man captain and crew teams includes: golf cart, goodie bag, breakfast, snacks, and a chicken and steak lunch for morning flight; sandwiches, snacks and a chicken and steak dinner for the afternoon flight.
