The 2024 Golf Tournament will take place on June 10, 2024. Follow us on social media for up-to-date information.
Prep’s longest-running fundraiser, the annual Golf Tournament, celebrated its 45th iteration on June 12 as generations of Prep men and their guests took to the fairway at Forest Hill Field Club in Bloomfield, NJ.
Despite the chance for rain, the weather held out for an unforgettable day of friendly competition, all in support of the students and families who have made Grand & Warren their second home.
The event, which welcomed more than 170 attendees, boasted two shotgun tee-offs, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, for 18 holes on a challenging par 71 Tillinghast-designed course.
In addition to the tournament, participants also enjoyed exclusive amenities like meals at the clubhouse and outdoor patio; a driving range and practice area; and access to an Olympic-sized swimming pool between gameplay.
As the sun set, everyone gathered for a buffet dinner, awards ceremony, and the drawing of the annual Super 50/50, the winner of which took home more than $3,000.
Congratulations to Tom Burton, ’22 for securing the overall winner’s trophy, the coveted Wagner Cup, presented in memory of longtime tournament participant Marcel E. Wagner, ’56.
He was followed by Gehrig Shannon, ’22 in second place and Dan Sweeney, ’01 in third.
