SUNY Cobleskill will host its 31st Annual SUNY Cobleskill Foundation Golf Tournament Friday, June 16 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cobleskill Golf and Country Club.
At last year’s tournament, 96 players raised more than $14,000 to support student success. The tournament offers players the opportunity to enjoy a challenging round of golf while supporting academic and athletic programs at the College.
For this year’s tournament, the College Foundation and Department of Sport & Exercise have teamed up to support SUNY Cobleskill students and student-athletes. The tournament’s net proceeds will be evenly split between Fighting Tigers Athletics and the College Foundation, which supports scholarships and academic programs for faculty, staff, and students, as well as other enrichment programs.
“The Foundation Golf Tournament is a great way to support our College, its students and student-athletes and a great reason to meet up with your Coby friends from yesteryear,” said Kyle Tuttle ’84, Honorary Chair of the Foundation Golf Tournament. “So put your team together and see if you can have more fun than the class of ’84!”
More than 250 Fighting Tiger student-athletes compete in 19 individual and team NCAA Division III sports at SUNY Cobleskill. The College recently announced that baseball will return in the spring of 2018. Head Coach Robert Fisk, who comes to SUNY Cobleskill from Philadelphia University, is currently working to recruit players and build the program.
The SUNY Cobleskill Foundation helps make the College a leader in public education by ensuring faculty has the ability to maintain academic excellence in teaching and empowering students to succeed inside and outside the classroom.
The tournament entry fee is $125, a portion of which is tax-deductible. The fee is due by June 8. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the tournament begins at 10 a.m. with lunch at noon. The day will wrap with a social hour and awards ceremony at 3:30 p.m.
