Golf carts and beverages are included. A master cigar roller will be available to hand-roll fresh cigars for an additional cost.

“Join us for a beautiful day on the links of Idlewild Country Club and help some very deserving, hardworking students at the same time,” said Deborah Havighorst, executive director, Institutional Advancement and the PSC Foundation. “Each year the golf outing proves to be one of the Foundation’s most anticipated events full of camaraderie, friendly competition and fun,” she said.

According to Havighorst, the Foundation is anticipating the need to award up to $60,000 in scholarships for the fall 2017 semester, and the success of Foundation events, including the golf outing, is pivotal to meeting that need.
