The George Bataitis Open Golf Tournament will be held at Chautauqua Golf Club on May 12.
The GBO, a fundraiser for JCC athletics scholarships, celebrates its 23rd anniversary this year. Southern Chautauqua Federal Credit Union is the major sponsor for the tournament.
The four-player scramble format tournament will award prizes in scratch and handicap in the men’s and women’s divisions as well as closest to the pin, men's longest drive, women's straightest drive, team skins, and hit the green contests. The $80 entry fee includes greens fees, golf cart, gift pack, course refreshments, and lunch. A continental breakfast precedes the 8:30 a.m. shotgun start.
Tournament proceeds will benefit JCC’s George Bataitis Athletic Fund. When Bataitis retired in 1987 after 35 years of service to JCC's physical education and athletics programs, a scholarship fund was initiated in his name, with the GBO providing the funds. Tournament proceeds provide scholarships for male and female athletes attending JCC and program support for the college's physical education department.
