On June 16, 2015, ASB held its 10th Annual Vision Cup Golf Tournament and players could not have asked for a more perfect day at White Manor Country Club in Malvern, PA.
The assembled golfers played through the beautiful course and in doing so helped ASB raise much needed funds that will support the programs and services that benefit people who are blind or visually impaired.
Players were treated to a delicious luncheon followed by a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start. With the sun shining overhead, the golfers carted off to their respective starting holes for a great day of golf. Players took part in the day’s contests which included Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive, Get on the Green, Hole in One, and a Putting Contest.
Jim Ganter, President of the Middle Atlantic Blind Golf Association (MABGA), and his sighted guide, provided a blind driving demonstration to each foursome that played through the 10th Hole, leaving many golfers in awe.
To close out the day’s festivities, players and guests attended the 19th Hole Reception where they enjoyed a cocktail reception and delicious hors d’oeuvres.
Played in the shamble format, the Glenmede team of John Church, Steven Lloyd, Tim Lloyd and Adam Douberly, won first place net, followed by a team of George Foley and Geoff Dewey who took home second place net. The Canon team of Dom Melchiore, Rob Schuck, Herman Rubin and Andrew Mucerino took home first place gross, and were the overall winners of the tournament.
WHYY’s Ed Cunningham once again served as the evening’s emcee and kept everyone entertained throughout the evening.
