On Monday, September 19, 2011, Medgar Evers College shall host its second annual Golf Tournament fundraiser from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm. Held at Brooklyn’s picturesque Dyker Heights Beach Golf Course, the event promises to be a rewarding opportunity to tee off for a purpose as a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the Medgar Evers College Educational Foundation to maintain student scholarships and enhance college programs.
“This is a great opportunity to strengthen student support initiatives while enjoying a day on the greens,” said Dr. Pollard. “The Medgar Evers College Educational Foundation has been dedicated to ensuring access to higher education for all aspiring collegians regardless of their financial and social constraints.” The day’s event shall include a golf clinic for beginners, raffles, prizes, and much more.
First opened in the late 1890’s, Dyker Beach Golf Course is a beautiful 18-hole championship course that features tree-lined, rolling fairways as well as spectacular views of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. The golf course is located at 86th Street and 7th Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11228.
