DAWN TO DUSK GOLF MARATHON

IF YOU COULD USE AN EXCUSE TO PLAY GOLF, WE’VE GOT A MILLION.

Dawn to Dusk Golf Marathon is the largest one-day fundraiser for the J. Wood Platt Caddie Scholarship Trust. Every August, club representatives play golf sunrise to sundown to raise money for Philadelphia’s True Golf Charity. Since its dawn, the annual event has raised more than $1.4 million with more than 23,000 holes played. This year’s Dawn to Dusk is set for Aug. 21 at North Hills Country Club.

CADDIE BRUNCH

AN EVENT FOR THOSE WHO PREFER TO DO THEIR SHOOTING BEFORE BREAKFAST.

The annual Caddie Brunch brings together both Platt donors and scholars during the holiday season for a time of celebration. In 2018, Tom Doll, the CEO of Subaru North America and a former caddie at Huntingdon Valley Country Club, was the guest speaker at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club. Luke Ciminera of Aronimink Golf Club and West Chester University was recognized as the Francis C. Poore Caddie of the Year. The 2019 Brunch is set for Dec. 21 at Llanerch Country Club.

J. WOOD PLATT CUP

THE OPEN THAT WELCOMES ALL CONTRIBUTORS.

The Platt Cup is open to all contributors who give at the Birdie Level ($500) or higher, along with all Lifetime and Endowed contributors. The 2019 event takes place July 21 at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club.

PLATT OLYMPICS

MANY ENTER BUT ONLY ONE TEAM WINS.

The Platt Olympics grew out of our Dawn to Dusk Golf Marathon event. Last year’s inaugural event saw nine clubs send three-person teams to Rolling Green Golf Club to compete in four different skills challenges: longest drive, closest to the hole, chipping, and putting. Aronimink Golf Club’s team of Marty Klagholz, Jeff Klagholz, and Dan Bernard won the title and will look to defend at this year’s event.
