September 5, 2013

There’s still time to register a four-person team to participate in the 2013 Atlantic Cape Community College Scramble “Fore” Scholarships golf tournament, Friday, Oct. 11, at the Cape May National Golf Club.

The tournament will follow a scramble format, beginning with a shotgun-start at
11 a.m.

Player fees, which include gift bags, lunch and a dinner awards banquet, are $150 per person and $500 per foursome.

Golfers can participate in a variety of skills challenges, including: chip-to-the-boat, putting green, closest-to-the-pin and longest drive contests. A Kindle Fire HD will be awarded to one of the skilled golfers. Other gifts for participating golfers are water bottles, flasks, golf shirts, towels and cigars. 

Individuals and businesses can also participate in six sponsorship package opportunities ranging from $125 to $5,000. Last year’s event raised $25,000 for Atlantic Cape scholarships and Foundation operations.

The historic Chalfonte Hotel in Cape May will host an awards dinner at 5:30 p.m., in the acclaimed Magnolia Room. Chefs Dot and Lucille, who are celebrating their 75th anniversary with the Chalfonte, will prepare their famous crab cake and fried chicken dinner. Atlantic Cape’s Academy of Culinary Arts students will prepare a variety of decadent desserts. Tickets to the awards dinner are $50 and can be purchased online at www.atlantic.edu/golf.

 Located on Route 9 near renowned Victorian Cape May, and centrally located along one of the world’s most famous bird migration flyways, Cape May National has been recognized as one of the most naturally beautiful courses in the United States.

To register, become a sponsor or purchase tickets to the awards dinner, contact Jennifer Martucci at (609) 463-4511 or jmartucci@atlantic.edu, or visit www.atlantic.edu/golf.
