MUNCY – The annual Muncy Cup Golf Tournament, sponsored by Muncy Historical Society begins with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. June 11 at Wynding Brook Golf Club, Milton.
Now in its 17th year, the event is a major fundraiser for Muncy Historical Society’s community outreach objectives, including its quest to develop a Heritage Park and Nature Trail. Located along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River, the park highlights historical Port Penn, a commercial and residential suburb of the town of Muncy that blossomed out of the West Branch Canal industry of the 1800s.
In return for the $80 registration fee ($160 per two-person team), golfers enjoy green fees, a cart, refreshments, lunch, a “goodie” bag, and on-course men’s and women’s “closest to the pin,” “longest drive” and a “hole-in-one” contest. There are optional activities such as a skins game, a $5,000 putting contest, door prizes and a 50/50 drawing. Registration deadline is June 5 and is limited to amateur golfers, 18 years and older.
This all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization encourages and supports a number of educational initiatives including special exhibits and living history programs. Read the rest of this entry »
