Sam Urzetta Alumni Classic (SUAC)

Golf Tournament Set for August 7, 2020

 

This year’s tournament (our 13th) will take place at the Lima Golf & Country Club, 7470 Chase Rd. Lima, 14485 on Friday, August 7, 2020. This event, hosted by the East Rochester Alumni Foundation, is the organization’s major source of revenues used to underwrite “Excellence in Education” grants which benefit all students in the East Rochester School System.  In 2019, the SUAC generated over $20,000 for the Alumni Foundation.  Since its inception in 2008, this tournament has raised in excess of $180,000.

According to the tournament committee, “This tournament is designed to appeal to players of all levels.  Our main purpose is to raise money for Foundation grants and projects and to bring lots of current and former East Rochester friends and supporters together for a fun day of golf and camaraderie.”  To this end, we and our partners at Lima C.C. make every effort to keep entry fees as low as possible.  We use a “Scramble” format where handicaps are not used and where the foursome’s score is determined by combining the best shots made by all team members on each hole.

Registration, coffee & donuts and a Putting Contest begin at 7:15 AM.  The tournament kicks off at 9:00 AM.  To accommodate approximately 200 players again this year, the tournament will be played on both the Charleston Pines and Island Oaks courses.

2019’s entry fee of $100.00 per player is yet to be confirmed but will be the same in 2020 if at all possible.  Your entry fee will include greens fees, a cart, free coffee & donuts, a clubhouse drink ticket, separate tee and door prizes, free driving range privileges, a fabulous buffet lunch and a donation to the East Rochester Alumni Foundation.  On the day of the tournament, a putting contest, mulligan purchases, “skins” game and a giant raffle will be available to players for additional charges.  “Lunch Only” tickets will be available for $25.00 per ticket.  We will attempt to accommodate foursome preferences with regard to course selection.  To avoid course and banquet delays, a maximum of 55 foursomes will be registered. Early registrants will be given priority in regard to course selection.

Foursomes who have registered and paid by June 30, 2020 will be automatically entered in our “Early Bird” drawing. The winning foursome, drawn of tournament day, will receive a full refund of their foursome’s Entry Fee.

Early registration is encouraged and will be greatly appreciated!

Registration forms will be available on or about April 1, 2020 on this website and at the ERUFSD District Superintendent’s Office, the East Rochester Town/Village Office or at the Lima C.C. Pro Shop.  For “Lunch Only” tickets please contact Carl Tobin at ctobin@frontiernet.net or at (585) 526-6120.

To preserve the nature of this event, at least one member of each foursome must be an East Rochester Alum, a current or former E.R. Teacher/administrator/Staff Member, an E.R. resident, local business owner/operator, ERUFSD student or Alumni Foundation Sponsor.

This years Distinguished Alumni Award (DAA) will be presented during the awards banquet which follows the tournament.  The recipient will be selected by the Alumni Foundation at its April 20th board meeting.  The Foundation will accept DAA nominations through Friday, April 5, 2020.  Please visit http://www.erschools.org/alumni/distinguished_alumni_award for further guidance.
