Challenge the Master Gardeners in the ‘People’s Tourney’

June 28, 2012

[SWAN LAKE] – It’s not too late to sign up to play in the 6th Annual Golf Classic Fundraiser supporting Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) of Sullivan County.  The tournament begins at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 7 at the Swan Lake Golf & Country Club.  

Advanced golf players are encouraged, but if you are a beginner or a casual golfer, this is the “people’s tourney” where learning to play and enjoying the game are just as important as winning the hole.

This year CCE has added a new challenge to the annual outing for those with a competitive spirit .  All teams with a score that beats the Master Gardener’s Team are eligible to win two hours of gardening time for their favorite non-profit organization.  Playing for the Master Gardeners are: Al Frangipane, Nicholas Frangipane, Gene Ackerley and Bill Ackerley.

Tickets are $80 for those who sign up beforehand and $90 on the day of the event.  The day includes green fees, cart, raffle prizes, dinner awards ceremony and buffet (roast chicken breast or vegetable lasagna).  “Hole in One” prizes are sponsored by M&M Auto Group. 

Individual players without complete foursomes will be accommodated.  For those who don’t play golf, tickets are available for dinner only, beginning at approximately 5:30 p.m.  The rain date is Sunday, July 8. 

To register, sign up a team or have special needs, contact the Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County Office at 845-292-6180 or 

Cornell Cooperative Extension is a statewide educational organization funded by national, state and county governments – that helps New York residents put research-based knowledge to work.
