Castleton University hosts the 15th annual Castleton Classic golf tournament on Friday, August 13 at Rutland Country Club.
The afternoon of golf begins with registration at noon and a 1 p.m. shotgun start. Interested individuals can put together a team of four players or sign up individually to be paired with a team. Sponsorship opportunities are also available for local businesses.
The day will end with an awards ceremony, with prizes for low gross and net winners, longest drive competition, and hole-in-one prizes, and will include a cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres.
All proceeds from the event benefit Castleton’s 28 varsity teams and more than 600 student-athletes. To date, the Castleton Classic has raised more than $600,000 for Castleton athletics.
“The CastletonClassic golf tournament has become a staple fundraising event in support of our athletics programs, bringing together our generous community partners, event sponsors, and alumni for the benefit of our student-athletes,” said Director of Development and Alumni Affairs Courtney Widli. “Each year the camaraderie, friendly competition, fun, and Spartan spirit are out in full-force.”
