7th Annual Patriot Classic Golf Tournament

by Office of Marketing | Jun 04, 2009
The seventh annual Patriot Classic Golf Tournament took place as scheduled on Thursday, June 4, 2009, at the Kimberton Golf Course. Even though, for the first time in seven years, the skies did not part and the sun did not shine, the spirits of the 142 golfers were not the least bit dampened by the bleak forecast. The cool weather and intermittent showers kept the golfers cool and refreshed as they once again tackled the beautiful course. 

Following the completion of golf a dinner was held in the Main Chapel at the college. Winners were announced and door prizes were awarded. The winning foursome, with 10 under par, went to Russ Eggert, Christian Arendt, Bob West and Mike Van Horn. Finishing a close second were Barry Brodt, Barry E. Brodt, Ryan Brodt, and Maxwell Bassman. Individual prizes were won by Brian Coles, Doug Sayers, and Dan Miller. 

This year's tournament was another successful event raising thousands of dollars for scholarships which will be awarded to VFCC students for the 2009-2010 academic year. The field was full three weeks prior to the event and several foursome's were turned away due to a lack of space. Next year's tournament will be held on Thursday, June 3, 2010, at the same location. We expect another full field and encourage golfers to send in their registration as early as possible. Information will be sent out at the beginning of February.
