Cape May County Championship Golf Tournament Oct. 5 will Benefit Students

August 30, 2007

Sponsors and players are needed for the 2007 Cape May County Championship Golf Tournament "Scramble Fore Scholarships," planned for Friday, Oct. 5, at Cape May National Golf Club in Cape May. Partnering with the ACCC Foundation, CMNGC will host the tournament to raise scholarship money for Cape May County residents attending ACCC. The tournament's presenting sponsor is Newfield National Bank

The tournament will follow a scramble format, beginning with a shotgun-start at 12:30 p.m. Player fees, which include an event windbreaker, lunch and a dinner awards banquet, are $125 per person. This year's tournament will feature a variety of skills competitions. Players will also have the opportunity to win a new car or $25,000 cash in the Hole-in-One contest.

Individuals and businesses can also participate in six sponsorship package opportunities ranging in price from $100 to $3,500. Last year's event raised $22,000 for ACCC scholarships.

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 is recognized as one of the most naturally beautiful courses in the United States.
