Presenting sponsor Snug Harbor Marina & Service Center and the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy have announced their 32nd Annual Pro-Am Charity Golf Tournament. The Pro-Am will be held at the Chautauqua Golf Club’s Lake Course on Monday, June 25th. The event will have an 11:00 AM shotgun start. There are many sponsorship opportunities available, a portion of which is tax deductible. Area businesses are especially encouraged to sponsor this event; a Bronze Level sponsorship includes a team of three golfers.
The “Score One for the Lake!” tournament welcomes both male and female amateur golfers. Each team will include a visiting PGA professional from the Western New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania areas, making for an exciting day of golf. The Pro-Am will have an 11 AM shotgun start, with lunch served on the course, and concludes with the awards dinner at the club’s Double Eagle Restaurant.
The Conservancy welcomes Snug Harbor Marina & Service Center as the Pro-Am’s presenting sponsor. Snug Harbor’s sales showroom is located at 2374 West Lake Road (Route 394) in Ashville, and offers docking and complete marine service at their 5822 Snug Harbor Road location in Mayville.
The event serves as a major fundraiser for the Conservancy, with proceeds from prior year tournaments supporting many vital watershed education and land conservation projects and programs. Chairman Bill Locke stated, “This tournament funds activities which address the root causes of the pollution that fuels lake plant and algae growth. These include watershed conservation projects that conserve important habitats and land features which provide clean waters to the streams and lakes of the Chautauqua region. Also included is working with landowners to enhance shoreline habitats, control soil erosion, re-establish healthy vegetated buffer strips along streams and reduce nutrients entering waterways from lawn care and other activities. Stopping these problems at their source is essential to a healthy lake. Maintaining a healthy and enjoyable lake is essential to the economy of our area and benefits all businesses and residents of the region.”
