Capital’s First Golf Classic At Keney To Benefit 2019 Summer College Transition Program

Capital Community College Foundation will hold its first Golf Classic on Friday, May 10, 2019 at Keney Park Golf Course  — a scramble tournament in support of a summer program to  ease the transition of first-time students  going into college.

The summer “bridge” program provides entering students with pre-college academic support that improves achievement and retention and leads to transfer to four year schools. Net proceeds from the Classic will benefit this transition program in 2019.


The cost for individual players is $150 or $600 per foursome. Registration covers greens fees, golf cart, lunch, dinner and refreshments on the course. Participants can arrange their own foursomes or sign up as singles.  The cost for dinner only guests is $30.

Event and sponsorship information and other ways to participate are available. Sponsorship benefits include foursomes, pre- and post- event logo recognition on tournament print and online communication, social media and at the downtown campus.
