CHICOPEE, Mass. – Elms College men's golf coach Craig Cowles will participate in the tenth annual Special Olympics of Massachusetts Celebrity Golf Classic hosted by the Country Club of Wilbraham. The reception is Sunday, June 22 with celebrity golf action set for Monday, June 23.
Coach Cowles has played an intricate role in the development and success of the event and has provided invaluable contributions through monetary donations, clothing and merchandise sales, and time spent with Special Olympians.
The Special Olympics Celebrity Golf Classic is a unique tournament that will partner each foursome with a local Special Olympics golf athlete on a par-three and play an active role in the scramble format tournament. This gives the celebrity athletes the opportunity to show off their golf skills and allows the other golfers to learn more about Special Olympics and our athletes.
Over the course of the last ten years, the event has gained ground and become extremely popular throughout the state. For the tenth consecutive year, the classic has sold out and this year, can be attended by invitation only.
