CAPE MAY—The 2015 Atlantic Cape Community College Scramble “Fore” Scholarships golf tournament is planned for Friday, Oct. 9, at the Cape May National Golf Club in Cape May. Partnering with the Atlantic Cape Foundation, CMNGC will host the tournament to support student scholarships and Foundation operations.

Chris Ford of Margate, former Holy Spirit High School basketball player and head coach of the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks, will be the featured guest at this year’s golf tournament. Ford also served as the Philadelphia 76’ers interim head basketball coach from February-April 2004, and as an assistant coach from July 2003 until February 2004.

The tournament will follow a scramble format, beginning with a shotgun-start at
12:30 p.m. Player fees, which include a complimentary gift, lunch and awards dinner, are $150 per person and $500 per foursome. Golfers can participate in a variety of skills challenges, including closest-to-the-pin and longest drive contests. Individuals and businesses can also support the event through sponsorship opportunities ranging from $125 to $5,000.

Located on Route 9 near renowned Victorian Cape May, and centrally located along one of the world’s most famous bird migration flyways, Cape May National has been recognized as one of the most naturally beautiful courses in the United States.
