50th Annual Mary Ellen Golf Tournament

W

e will be hosting the 50th Annual Mary Ellen Golf Tournament to benefit Easterseals Eastern Pennsylvania on July 29, 2019. Proceeds from the tournament provide Easterseals with the funding needed to ensure that children and young adults with disabilities can access critical services needed to live happy, productive and healthy lives.  

Last year, the Mary Ellen Golf Tournament raised more than $160,000 thanks to the many generous donors and the dedicated executive committee chaired by Tony Salvaggio. All proceeds from the event allow Easterseals to fulfill its mission to increase independence, maximize opportunities, minimize barriers and enhance quality of life for the thousands of individuals with disabilities receiving Easterseals services in Eastern Pennsylvania. Easterseals programs include early intervention; specialty medical clinics; outpatient physical, speech and occupational therapy; overnight and day summer camps; recreation activities; rehabilitation and community support; family respite and pre-employment skill development.

Putting Green Expansion – Phase 1 Complete

We are pleased to announce the completion of Phase 1 of our putting green expansion!  This project, constructed by our Greens Superintendent – Eric Reed, and with the help of Green Mountain Excavating, will be complete sometime in 2019 depending on weather, germination and maturation.

This newly expanded green, while providing additional practice area, will also be connected to our existing 18th green creating a special relationship and thus requiring a hole-specific set of rules.  Stay tuned for details from our head Golf Professional and PGA rules savant, Clark Luis.
