The Penn State Wilkes-Barre Alumni Constituent Society will host its 18th Annual Penn State “Masters” Golf Tournament on Friday, July 12 at Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club in Mountain Top.

The proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Penn State Wilkes-Barre Alumni Society’s Scholarship Fund, the Alumni Speaker Series, THON, Academic Excellence Awards and other initiatives.

This year’s winning flight in the Captain and Crew style tournament will receive Penn State Wilkes-Barre “Masters” navy blazers complete with 24k gold-plated Penn State buttons.

Golfers also have a chance to win several hole-in-one prizes while on the course including a grand prize of a car donated by the Ken Pollock Auto Group. Other contests during the day include closest to the pin, longest drive for men and women, and double your money by “holding the green.” Various other prizes, including gift certificates donated by local businesses will be raffled.

The day’s festivities get underway at 11:30 a.m. with registration and lunch and the tournament begins at 1 p.m. with a shotgun start. An awards banquet will begin at 6:30 p.m. where tournament and prize winners will be announced.
