CSM Foundation’s 29th Golf Classic Tournament Will be in Full Swing, with a Twist, this Fall

The 2020 CSM Foundation's Golf Classic is a go - with a twist. Will you be the next Dave Eicholtz - shown here collecting his golf ball that took the hole-in-one contest at the CSM Foundation Golf Classic in 1999?

The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) Foundation’s Golf Classic returns to Swan Point Country Club in Issue this fall with a twist. To ensure physical distancing guidelines and keep everyone safe, golfers who sign up for the Foundation’s 29th annual event can play their round any time within the tournament’s six-week date range starting Sept. 3.

Marrick Homes continues its support as the grand tournament sponsor of CSM Foundation’s signature event which has raised more than $1 million for students through the years. This year, proceeds will go to the CSM Foundation’s Help a Hawk efforts which was established in April to aid CSM’s most vulnerable students experiencing challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are grateful to Marrick Homes for their relentless commitment to our students and this event,” said CSM Foundation Chair Kim Rosenfield. “This is the 19th consecutive year that Marrick Homes has partnered with the foundation to make a difference in our students’ lives. We’re even more inspired by our team and CSM staff who came up with this creative and fun way to keep our fundraising momentum going,” Rosenfield continued. “Our students need us now more than ever in these extraordinary times.”

In fact, the CSM Foundation has already raised more than $120,000 specifically to help students impacted financially by COVID-19 and more than $73,000 has been awarded to 149 students thanks to the foundation’s Help a Hawk effort.

“Marrick Homes is excited to have the opportunity to be the grand tournament sponsor again this year,” said Jay Webster, vice president, Marrick Properties, Inc. “We are looking forward to a great day of golf while remaining physically distant.”

The tournament runs from Sept. 3 through Oct. 15, and golfers can play their round any weekday 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. or weekend 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. with a pre-scheduled tee time. Golfers can register using the link below and schedule tee time directly with the Swan Point Pro Shop. The golf pros at Swan Point will manage our CSM scoreboard and will post weekly updates online. Other generous supporters include Corporate Sponsor of former CSM Coach Danny Williams & Vickie Williams – Century 21 Real Estate; and Community Partner Sponsor Greene Turtle, of La Plata.

Sponsorships are still available, and include opportunities for exposure in marketing materials and social media campaigns. The deadline for sponsorship is Aug. 27. For information, contact the CSM Development Department at 301-934-7599 or csmfoundation@csmd.edu.
