(Registration open) Northeast NIT Qualifier: The Shepherd's Open at Keney Park (8/13/2021)

Ladies and Gents,

This needs to be kicked off properly so please take a minute to enjoy the Brass Bonanza and pour one out for a legendary hockey franchise that is no longer.

The RACDG NY Metro Chapter contingent, in partnership with NLU, is proud to bring you the inaugural Shepherd’s Open to be played at historic Keney Park in Hartford, CT on Friday, August 13, 2021. With 9 of the holes built by famed architect Devereux Emmet in 1927 and a second 9 added in 1931, this course has the “Golden Age Architecture” pedigree with rolling fairways and wild greens that will test all skill levels. It’s become a favorite of mine over the past year and I look forward to hosting fellow sickos.

The event will be open to ANYONE who would like to join us that day! We have reserved 50 spots for the event but that can easily be adjusted based on demand. If we get enough interest there is potential for closing the course all day for us.

Event Details:
Where: Keney Park Golf Course (https://www.keneyparkgolfcourse.com/)
When: Friday, August 13th, 2021
Time: Tee times starting at 11am (subject to change based on demand)

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me. I look forward to seeing everyone in August!


Keney is such a great track! Even if Hartford kind of sucks !!
