Golf Outing on the DuPont Country Club Championship Course

Country Club Logo Come join us for a golf outing at the recently renovated DuPont championship course at the venerable DuPont Country Club. This will be the first annual joint event of the Chicago Graduate School of Business Alumni Club of Greater Philadelphia and the MIT Club of the Delaware Valley.
The DuPont course was renovated in 2005 and is in excellent condition. We will be playing an 18-hole scramble format with 4-person teams comprised of both MIT and GSB alumni with prizes for the winning teams, and individual prizes for Closest to the Pin and Longest Drive contests. Dinner and social event will follow in the President's Room of the Country Club.
The entry fee covers golf, cart, dinner, practice balls at the range and a golf gift kit. We appreciate prize sponsorship by Rebecca Li-Huang of Merrill Lynch Private Wealth Management. Learn more about her group below.
Players of all skill levels are welcome. We will flight the teams with level A-B-C-D players for each team/foursome. We'll play Gold (middle) tees, 6325 yards.
Please note the strict DuPont Country Club dress code, detailed below.
There will be a cash bar available after the round and during dinner. It promises to be a landmark event, so come ready to play, meet some folks from another alumni club and have fun!
