Can You Find A Few Hours in Your Day This Year to Play Golf...
For The Doug Evans Memorial Family Cup?
Saturday, August 1st at Town of Colonie GC

9 holes of golf in a simple, fun team scramble with any 3-5 people you want? Not a huge time commitment for an individual who gave so much to all of us in the NENY PGA Section!

It’s as simple as that! In memory of former NENY PGA Tournament Director Doug Evans, the Section is administering the first annual Doug Evans Memorial Family Cup event at Town of Colonie GC on Saturday, August 21st. Proceeds benefit the PGA Reach NENY Foundation to create and offer scholarships for junior golfers attending college.

*We would greatly appreciate it if you would share the flyer with your own playing membership and patrons.
The more, the merrier!

** ALS Pro-Am Date Change **

Please be advised that the ALS Pro-Am originally scheduled for Monday, August 30th, has been RESCHEDULED. Per the communication, the new rescheduled date still hosted by Schuyler Meadows Club will be Tuesday, October 12th.

Due to the increased number of Delta variant cases and as a healthcare organization, we have been asked to pause our events from August 1st thru September 30th.  Although this recommendation came from Trinity, it was initiated and reviewed by St. Peter's Health Partners CEO Dr. Jim Reed and SPHP's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Steve Hanks, who both agree that holding a gathering while there is a significant increase in cases would be irresponsible and with risk.


   
NENY PGA Junior Tour Season Comes to An End

The NENY PGA Junior Tour Championship takes place today and tomorrow, where the top Junior POY will be crowned for each respective age division. Our Junior Tour Series was jam-packed into six weeks of play, and our junior membership #s were up 24%! We’re very appreciative of all our PGA Golf Facilities, who graciously hosted our junior fields.

Big shout out to these top juniors who had a great playing season and earned eligibility into the Tour Championship.
