The 21st Annual Cumberland County Conservation District Golf Tournament was held Friday, September 22, 2023 at Rich Valley Golf in Mechanicsburg.
Thank you to the 122 golf participants and to our generous hole sponsors and prize sponsors! This year's event was the largest since the inception of the tournament generating $8500 for student scholarships. To date, the Conservation District has raised over $66,000. The weather cooperated and we were able to get the event in before the effects of Tropical Storm Ophelia entered our region. The winning team of Kevin Rucker, Kelly Kelch, Brady Crouse and Wes Warehime shot a 20 under par, 51, nice job!
The District would like to thank everyone at Rich Valley Golf that helped make the day a success. Also, a special thank you to all our hole sponsors, especially the Conservationist Hole Sponsors below. Their contributions allow us to continue our efforts in providing scholarships to Cumberland County students. Finally, thank you to all the golfers. We hope to see you all again next September!
Each year the Conservation District organizes a golf tournament to raise money for environmental education activities in the County. The money is used for scholarships, the Envirothon and other educational efforts. Our goal each year is to raise enough money provide one $1000 scholarship and three $500 scholarships for Cumberland County students. Since we started the annual golf tournament in 2003, we have raised over $66,000.
