The Bob O’Connor Golf Course, home of The First Tee of Pittsburgh, will host the Fallen Heroes Memorial Golf Outing on May 9 at its 18 hole course in Schenley Park. All revenue from the event will go directly to the Fallen Heroes Memorial Fund.
The event will include a 1 PM shotgun-start scramble, skill prizes, donated raffle and auction prizes, and food provided by Giant Eagle. The cost is $200 per foursome.
“As a youth development agency that uses golf to teach kids core values this is very important for us to do,” says course manager Marc Field. “Not only does it give our junior golfers a chance to volunteer and participate in the healing process, but Officer Scuillo was a member of the Central Catholic Golf Team that still practices and plays at The Bob.”
Numerous area courses and golf suppliers are all contributing to the event led by Bob O’Connor PGA pro, Shane Rice. “It’s especially heartwarming to see our junior golfers step up to help with this event. In addition to helping the families of the fallen officers it also helps teach them how a community can come together when there is a tragedy.”
The field will be limited to 144 golfers. Prospective golfers should note that The Bob is a walking only course, pull carts are available.
