Scholarship Golf Tournament Rescheduled for October 24

Due to inclement weather in the area, the 9th annual Capitol Technology University Scholarship Golf Tournament has been rescheduled from its original date of Friday (September 30).

The event will now be held on October 24 at Turf Valley in Ellicott City, MD.

Each year, this exciting event raises funds to support the growing needs of students and ensure they have the financial support they need to realize their academic goals.

The tournament also helps build rapport among different members of the college community, including sponsors, trustees and college administration, faculty and staff, as well as students and alumni.

Registration for a foursome is $500. For an individual, the cost is $150. Non-players may register for $50. For full details about the event, and a link to registration and sponsorship forms, visit our Golf page or send an e-mail to golf@captechu.edu.

The tournament has three main purposes, says Capitol Technology University's president, Dr. Michael T. Wood.

“One, it raises money for our students. The major purpose is fundraising, to provide scholarship support and financial aid. Two, it’s a great opportunity to have some social camaraderie with our constituents and our supporters. It gets a lot of people who are members of the extended college community together for a good social time,” Wood said.

“Third, it brings us greater community visibility. Being out at a local golf course community enables us to generate contacts and relationships with people from various walks of life who are active in that community,” he said.

Registration costs cover not only the greens fees and equipment, but also a continental breakfast, lunch, and beverages on course. Each participant will receive a golf shirt marking the occasion, along with a sleeve of golf balls bearing the name of the college. An awards ceremony will be held after play is concluded.

The event will take place at one of the region’s premier getaways. Set among central Maryland’s rolling hills, Turf Valley boasts stunning autumnal scenery in addition to all the amenities of a top-class resort. Besides two 18-hole courses, it is home to a spa, a conference center, and a restaurant specializing in fusion cuisine.
