CHATHAM, Mass. – About 100 golfers made their way to Eastward Ho! Country Club for the New England PGA Scholarship Pro-Am on Wednesday, with the team from Wollaston GC winning the 2 Best Ball (1 gross, 1 net) of Four tournament at 6-under par.
The Wollaston GC foursome, led by Scott MacArthur, PGA, was 3-under par on each side to post 6-under par 136. They were the only group under par for the tournament, as the Bass Rocks GC team, led by Todd Scarafoni, PGA and Broken Tee Virtual Golf team, led by Mark Kitchen, PGA, tied for second at 1-over par.
The day started with heavy rain, forcing the field to walk the course, but the sky cleared by early afternoon and made way for stellar golf conditions.
In addition to golf, the event featured raffle prizes and an auction, and raised more than $12,000 for the NEPGA Foundation. NEPGA partner Tournament Solutions and owner John Lawrence also generously presented the NEPGA Foundation with a check for $9,456.05.
Thank you to NEPGA partners Lincoln Motors, ThorGurad, and Tournament Solutions for supporting this great event, which supports a great cause! A big thank you also goes to Eastward Ho! CC and PGA Professionals Brian Hamilton and Jason Winslow for opening their stunning facility on Wednesday.
