Golf has always been a prominent fixture in Matt’s life. It is something he did with friends and family members from a young age. Matt grew up playing at many courses in the area but none more than Walpole Country Club. When he launched the foundation, he knew that hosting a golf tournament for a fundraiser had the opportunity to be a huge success, and he couldn’t envision another course hosting it, other than Walpole.
Due to the Covid pandemic, the foundation went over a year since its launching to hold an event. As things returned to normal, planning got underway for a golf tournament. With a July date set, we opened registration in early March. We couldn’t believe that our field reached capacity in 24 hours! However, due to the rains that fell the week prior to our tournament date, we had to postpone to September and play the waiting game just a little bit longer.
The result of the September makeup was nothing but an overwhelming success. Our field remained full, we had multiple tee box sponsors on almost every hole, and the sun shined the entire day. Similar to the Boston Marathon returning to its regular date in 2022, our second golf tournament was able to take place on its regular scheduled July date and was yet again an overwhelming success!
We owe a huge thanks to Walpole Country Club, those who participate, and all of the sponsors who play the role that they play to ensure the success year after year. We envision our 2023 tournament to be another amazing day for the foundation and registration for it will be approaching fast this spring.
As always, we welcome new players to get involved, as well as groups and individuals that would like to sponsor or donate raffle items and silent auction items.
