The SUNY Sullivan Foundation will hold its 19th Annual Golf Tournament at the Tarry Brae Golf Course on Friday, September 21. The event, dubbed the “The Start of Something Great Tournament,” will raise funds for athletic scholarships.

Beginning this fall, SUNY Sullivan will compete at the NJCAA Division II athletic level in Men’s and Women’s Basketball. The college has been competing for a number of years at the Division II level in Baseball. Colleges participating in Division II athletics are able to provide scholarships to qualified students to help cover the costs of tuition, books, fees, and up to $250 in course-required supplies. Additionally, the move to Division II athletics will allow SUNY Sullivan to serve dozens more students, as the college will field junior varsity teams for each Division II sport.

Registration and lunch begin at 11:00 a.m. with a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. JeffBank is once again the tournament sponsor. Chris DePew, SUNY Sullivan’s Director of Athletics and Dean of Student Development Services, will chair the event.

The entry fee for the tournament is $120 per person and includes a round of golf, golf cart, on-course refreshments, lunch, cocktails, a delicious steak dinner, and a golf gift. Friends of the college who are not available to play golf, are invited to attend the dinner at 5:00 p.m.; dinner tickets are $40 per person.

Golfers will also have a chance to vie for fantastic hole-in-one prizes on each of the par-three holes, including a shot at a 2-year lease on a 2018 Ford Escape, compliments of the M&M Auto Group. As always, prizes will be awarded for the top men’s and women’s foursomes.

New this year is the “Ultimate Experience” Raffle, which provides chances to win fabulous prizes including:
