24th GBO Will Be Held May 11At Chautauqua GC
CHAUTAUQUA – The George Bataitis Open Golf Tournament will be held at Chautauqua Golf Club on May 11.
The GBO, a fundraiser for Jamestown Community College athletics scholarships, celebrates its 24th anniversary this year AND Jamestown Macadam, Inc. 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.
