On Friday, June 1st, the 31st Annual Rutgers Athletics Golf Outing presented by The Elm Press was held at the Rutgers University Golf Course in Piscataway. The outing serves as an opportunity for friends and supporters of Rutgers Athletics to meet student-athletes, coaches and administrators, as well as share the fairways with their fellow Rutgers supporters.
More than 230 golfers hit the tees during the outing, which consisted of both a morning and an afternoon shotgun. They participated in numerous contests throughout the day including the Putting Contest presented by Miller’s Rentals, the Longest Drive Contest presented by Miller Lite, the Closest to the Pin Contest presented by the Peter Gibson Family Foundation, and the “Challenge the Coach” Contest presented by JBL Electric, in which golfers tested their skills against two of Rutgers finest, Head Men’s Golf Coach Rob Shutte and Head Women’s Golf Coach Maura Ballard. Golfers also had the opportunity to win brand new cars as both the New Jersey Audi Dealers and Kemper Kia of Bridgewater, NJ sponsored Hole-in-One contests on the course.
The AM shotgun was won by Cheryl Hart, Vern Wells, Marian Rosenwasser, and Bob Rosenwasser with a score of 60, while Brian Leary, Terry Craig, Michael O’Donovan and Joe Bubenheimer of JBL Electric shot a 64 to win the PM shotgun
The Food Architects catered the event with terrific spreads for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. The participants were also treated to a complimentary ice cream bar, donated by Thomas Sweet Ice Cream and Chocolate.
Over $82,000 in proceeds raised by the event will support Rutgers Athletics and aid in the funding of student-athlete scholarships, facility improvements, and other athletic department priorities.
