2017 Shields Memorial Golf Tournament
The 38th annual Shields Memorial Golf Tournament will be held at Glenn Dale Golf Club on May 12, 2017. As always, the Shields families welcome and extend their warm hospitality to this year’s players. This year’s tournament continues to recognize the involvement of the Shields families in Maryland golf course operations.
In its history, the Shields tournament has raised over $200,000 in scholarship endowments for IAA Golf Course Management and Sports Turf Management students. Proceeds from the tournament have also covered the costs of student travel to various professional meetings and competitions.
The positive impact of your participation and sponsorship not only includes the 100+ scholarship recipients to date, but also the hundreds of students who have benefited from professional development opportunities and the hands-on use of state-of-the-art field and laboratory equipment.
