05/01/13 The Ancilla College Golf Classic has sold out for the 5th year in a row with a full field of 40 teams. Event organizer Tom Sibal said “We work hard to put together a top-notch golf outing that everyone will enjoy. Businesses in the area are very generous and make it possible for Ancilla College to put on a tournament that has everyone going home happy, no matter how they play.”
Sibal said the college continues to look for hole sponsors for the tournament as well as a sponsor for the Closest to the Pin Contest. He added this is a great opportunity for a business to gain local exposure because many of the 160 players are from Marshall and Starke counties. You can find out more about sponsorship opportunities by calling Tom Sibal at 574-936-8898, x355.

The primary goal of the tournament is to raise funds for the college so that it can provide scholarships and tuition assistance for students. The fellowship and networking opportunities provided during the outing help to make for an enjoyable day with Ancilla family and friends.
The tournament is set to take place at the Plymouth Country Club, overlooking Pretty Lake in Plymouth, on Monday, June 10th. The tournament will follow the four-person Florida scramble format.
This year’s tournament will feature a catered cook-out lunch provided by Christo’s followed by a prime rib dinner in the Club House after the tournament. Golfers will be welcomed at the ninth hole by the always popular, Heavenly Putters. The “Putters” offer the opportunity to save a stroke if a golfer gives a small donation and allows a Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ Sister to make a putt for them.
New this year is a golf ball drop fundraiser which is open to the general public. One lucky winner will take home up to $1,000 if their marked ball falls into the hole. A single ball can be purchased for just $5.00 and there are discounts for multiple ball purchases. The golf ball drop is open to the general public and you do not need to be present to win.
