John V. Vendetti 24th Annual Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament

The John V. Vendetti 24th Annual Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament, , will be held Friday, June 21, 2019, at the Fairview Farm Golf Course, 300 Hill Road, Harwinton, CT 06791.

The tournament is organized by the St Anthony’s Council of the Knights of Columbus.

The tournament is an 18 hole scramble . The cost of the event is $140 per person, or $520 per foursome. The registration fee includes green fees, cart, awards, raffle prize, hot lunch and a buffet dinner. Email to pre-register or register tournament day.

There will be on-course contests such as closest to the pin and longest drive for both men and women, and a free two-year lease on a car from Litchfield Ford for a hole-specific hole -in- one.

The tournament day schedule is as follows:

8:00 am Registration

9:00 am Partial shotgun start

Lunch at the turn

Awards, raffle and buffet dinner after play.

The tournament is named after the late John Vendetti, Grand Knight of the St. Anthony’s Council, who conceived the idea of the tournament to raise scholarship money.

Proceeds from the tournament fund several scholarships for college bound high school seniors who are parishioners of either St. Anthony of Padua Church or Our Lady of Grace Church in Bantam.

This tournament is the sole fundraiser for the scholarship fund which last year gave 7 qualified high school seniors $1,000 each.
