September 13, 2022

The 25th annual MCLA Athletics Golf Classic will be held Monday, Sept. 19 at Wyndhurst Golf & Club at Miraval (formerly Cranwell Resort) in Lenox. The Golf Classic serves as a major fundraiser for the College’s Athletic Department. Over the years, the Classic has netted $25,000–$40,000 annually to support MCLA’s student-athletes.  

“We are so grateful to the sponsors and participants who make this event a success each year,” said MCLA Director of Athletics Laura Mooney. “Their generosity and contributions allow the department to make facility upgrades and to enhance the student-athlete experience through new uniforms, team gear, and specialized equipment purchases. These items directly impact the recruitment and retention of our students and student-athletes.”  

This year’s event will honor MountainOne, the North Adams-based financial services company, for its longtime contributions to MCLA and support of its student-athletes. MountainOne is also the lead sponsor of this year’s Golf Classic. 

The format for the event is an 18-hole scramble tournament. The entry cost includes greens fees, golf cart rental, course snacks, a post-golf reception, branded gifts, and more.   

Event Schedule:  
Registration: 9:30–10:30 a.m. 
Tournament Start: 11 a.m. 
Awards Reception: 5 p.m.
