Cape Cod Golf Classic will be held at Eastward Ho! Country Club, Chatham MA on September 13, 2017 to benefit the Jimmy Fund.  A fundraiser for Jimmy Fund Golf presented by Mohegan Sun, one of the largest organized charity golf programs in the U.S., this local event will support adult and pediatric cancer research and care at the world-renowned Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Featuring a Bramble format, Cape Cod Golf Classic 2017 is open for registration at www.capecodgolfclassic.com.  Event Sponsors of the Cape Cod Golf Classic include Fairway Restaurant and Hole in One in Orleans and Eastham, Nauset Marine, Nauset Disposal, Land Ho in Orleans and Harwich Port, The Jailhouse Tavern and Hog Island Beer Company

Fairway Restaurant began hosting this local tournament in 2001 after a family member battled and won their fight against Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Since 2001, we have collectively donated over $175,000 with the help of local business leaders and residents of the Lower Cape. Our goal each year is to raise over $20,000 for cancer research.

“Since the Jimmy Fund’s organized golf program began in 1983, the golf community has been incredibly supportive and has helped to raise more than $115 million for the important efforts of the researchers and clinicians at Dana-Farber,” said Nancy Rowe, director of Jimmy Fund Golf.

Cape Cod Golf Classic is scheduled for 1pm Shotgun on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 with registration beginning at 11:30am.  For more information about the Cape Cod Golf Classic on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 please contact Ken Taber at 774-353-6311 or visit www.capecodgolfclassic.com
