Alumni Golf

12:30 p.m., Monday, Aug. 1
Arnold Palmer's Latrobe Country Club

The Penn State New Kensington Alumni Society will host the 17th annual Alumni Golf Scramble at 12:30 p.m., Monday, Aug. 1, at Arnold Palmer's Latrobe Country Club.

Co-hosted by Penn State New Kensington, the shot-gun start tournament is open to alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and friends of Penn State. The $200 entry fee includes green fee, cart, lunch, dinner, refreshments and awards.

Out-of-town golfers can stay at the Springhill Suites Pittsburgh Latrobe, located less than five minutes from Latrobe Country Club. A tournament partner, Springhill Suites offers a nightly rate of $119, which includes breakfast and shuttle to the golf course. For hotel reservations, call 724-537-7800.

For those wanting to get a jump on festivities a day earlier, the Alumni Golf Scramble committee will host a private tour of Palmer’s memorabilia in the hotel and dinner at DeNunzio’s Italian Chophouse at the Arnold Palmer Regional Airport, Sunday, July 31. The cost is $50.

Non-golfers are welcome to forego chasing a little white ball with implements ill-suited for the purpose, and attend the post-tournament dinner and awards ceremony. The dinner is $50.

The golf scramble is the alumni group’s major fundraiser. Proceeds benefit the society's endowed scholarship that is awarded annually to New Kensington campus students. For the 2015-16 academic year, a record $5,500 in scholarships was awarded to four New Kensington campus students -- Lynsie Headley of Ford City; Alissa Dolensky of Lower Burrell; Adis Juklo of Pittsburgh; and Carley Carnahan of Lower Burrell. The endowment was established in 1994 at $15,000. It now stands at $109,000. Since 1998, the society has awarded $53,500 to 59 campus students.
