Wheaton to host 11th Annual Lyons Athletic Club Golf Open sponsored by Commodore Builders and SGA Architecture

NORTON, Mass. - The Wheaton College department of athletics and recreation is excited to announce its annual golf open. The tournament will take place Monday, August 12, 2019, at Franklin Country Club in Franklin, Massachusetts. This annual fundraiser, in its 11th year, supports Lyon student-athletes. 

This year Commodore Builders is the presenting sponsor, while SGA Architects have signed on to be the title sponsor. Commodore Builders is a mid-size construction management firm based in Boston, who is currently finishing construction on Wheaton's newest residence hall. The new residence hall will be about 45,000 square feet with a 178-bed capacity and located near Pine Street, adjacent to the Meadows complex and Young, McIntire, and Clark (YMC). The target completion date is July 2019, with an opening planned for the 2019 fall semester. To design the new building, the college hired the architectural firm SGA, which Fast Company Magazine recognized on its list of  "Most Innovative Companies in 2018."

At $175 per golfer, the tournament is an affordable and exciting opportunity for friends of the college to get together and play on a private course. Registration for the event is now open. Check-in for the event begins at 10 a.m., with an 11 a.m. shotgun start. Golfers will have the opportunity to grab lunch sponsored by Aramark and snacks prior to the start of the event or purchase at the snack shack, sponsored by MDS Architects. Following the event, there will be a BBQ buffet with the announcement of the annual award winners, as well as the raffle winners. 

There are numerous sponsorship opportunities still available. 

Join the Wheaton College department of athletics and recreation at Franklin Country Club for a fun day of golf, food, prizes, and networking in support of Lyon student-athletes.
