The 10th Annual Chris’ Chance Golf Outing will be held on Friday July 15, 2016!

The Chance

This memorial golf tournament has been created to celebrate Chris' legacy, to provide participants with  the enjoyment and camaraderie of playing sport, and to contribute toward the success of the Foundation.  In doing so, 100% of the proceeds from each event is utilized to pass on the chance Chris once had toward reaching his academic and athletic aspirations.  The event comes as a result of Chris' Chance which was prematurely taken away at the age of 23 as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Course Information

Designed by Roger Ruelwich (Metedeconk National, Ballyowen, Saratoga National), this “basin and ridge” design at Wild Turkey offers a real challenge for golfers of all levels, stunning elevation changes, and breathtaking views of the Pocono Mountains.  The signature hole on this course is the par-3 seventh which will test any golfer's nerves. Players must play their tee shot over a water-filled quarry onto a wide but narrow green. The clubhouse is spectacular with a large pro shop, locker rooms, ballroom, and two restaurants.
