Memorial golf tourney begins second decade

WARRENSBURG - Cronin's Golf Course in Warrensburg will host the 11th annual David J. Carpenter Memorial Golf Tournament Saturday, Sept. 18.

Carpenter was a long time Chestertown area businessman and avid golfer, who was active in community service.

Proceeds from the event will benefit two local organizations Carpenter supported, Hudson Headwaters Health Network, and the Dollars for Scholars Fund at North Warren Central School in Chestertown.

The event is organized by the Carpenter family including friends Bill and Pidy Carboy.

Mark Carpenter said the event has significance for his family and deep impact on the community.

"Over the first 10 years, the event has raised approximately $30,000 for local organizations," he said. "Last year's tournament was our most successful with $6,000 raised for Hudson Headwaters and Dollars for Scholars, both of which were important causes to my father. We hope to have another great turnout this fall."

The competition format is a four-person scrambled that's handicapped -10 percent of total handicap - and open to the public, with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start. The tournament is well known for its Everybody Wins aspect, in which every golfer goes home with a prize, and can savor the great steak dinner prepared by the Cronin family, Carpenter said.

Those golfers interested in participating, may contact Mark Carpenter at 494-2417 or by e-mail at markcarpenter@upstateagency.com, or call Bill Carboy at 494-2363.
