Golf Outings

The 2013 Philadelphia Lacrosse Association Golf Classic, Monday, October 14th at Bidermann Golf Club in Wilmington. Your participation will support the PLA’s mission to promote the game of lacrosse in the region, particularly the New Start Program, which provides technical and financial assistance to new lacrosse programs. The PLA has provided close to $350,000 in grant support to new lacrosse programs in the area since the outing’s inception in 1993. The PLA is pleased that Vicmead Hunt Club and Bidermann will host the 21st Annual Classic. Originally, the 9-hole private course of Henry Francis du Pont at his Winterthur estate, Bidermann was enlarged, redesigned and established as a private club in 1965 (it later merged with Vicmead). We have established a new PLA Golf Outing website and encourage you to register on-line (see http://www.plagolfouting.com/). If you are not a golfer or cannot attend the golfing activities, you are welcome to attend the cocktail reception and banquet that begins at 5:30 pm. Space in the outing is limited and registrations will be processed on a first come, first served basis.
