Please join us as we host our final James McDonough Four-Ball Tournament on Monday, July 25th at Wollaston Golf Club.
When we started the event in 2011, we were filled with unknowns and optimism. The unknowns were: Would we have a full roster of players? Could we generate the financial support to fund meaningful scholarships in James’s memory? Could we get assistance from individuals experienced in conducting golf tournaments? But these unknowns were countered by our optimism from knowing that James had so many dear friends and that we could call on them for volunteer assistance and financial support.
Thus, we began and with a clear understanding that the ‘shelf life’ for memorial events, such as a golf tournament, is about five years. Since 2011, we have been defying those tournament norms and been blessed with remarkably full-field and financial successes. You helped us to build and then grow significant educational endowments at St. Sebastian’s, The Ouimet and contribute to the First Tee of Massachusetts in James’s name. He would be thrilled!
Now, while some on our very dedicated Board are getting married and welcoming new babies, others of us are growing grayer. So, it is time to scale back.
We are forever thankful to our families, the Tournament Committee, sponsors, James’s many friends, Wollaston Golf Club, St. Sebastian’s School, The Ouimet, The First Tee, Rollins College, all the players and so many others who participated, volunteered their time and energy, donated auction items and offered financial and moral support to make each Tournament a memorable, joyous event.
Online registration opens today. Come join us in making this year’s final James McDonough Four-Ball the best yet!
